building barnacles

building barnacles, originally uploaded by westcoastcreative.

another sneak peek at the progress on my landscape quilt. i have finished the background structure, as it were. mountains, water, rocks and sand. the fabrics are a pleasant tactile mix of denim, silk, linen, and a bit of corduroy and flannel. i'm just enjoying the process, without thinking about the final product too much. right now i am using some rough yarn and making french embroidery knots, in the hopes that they will resemble barnacles on the rocks.

Mmmm, and with all of those lush textures it will only get better and better with wear. I love the chunky french knots for barnacles.
