This was a fun challenge done with the Quilters Above the Clouds (QAC) guild in Woodland Par, CO. For this challenge, each of us pulled an item from three different bags, representing the characters, rooms and weapons from the classic board game called Clue. I picked Mrs. Peacock, the Kitchen, and a Rope.
After thinking about this challenge, I decided to have some fun with it. So, I designed a cartoon representation for my piece. Mrs. Peacock is, of course, a bird. She is sitting in a colander in the kitchen examining her weapon of choice, a coil of rope. I used my Pigment Patchwork techniques to color and stitch for dimension.
Construction: Raw-edge applique using cotton and batik fabric; commercial cotton for backing; polyester batting; cotton, polyester and monofilament threads; various pigments.
