Refrigerator Art

I like to make small pieces where I just play and experiment.  I call them "refrigerator art".

Here is one I made this week.  I love the look of the smaller strips cutting across the squares.   The strip fabric is actually a batik floral design but you can't tell that.  I  like how the design on the fabric changes when it is cut into such a small piece.  The little strips look textured, like the bark of a birch tree.  Unfortunately the hand sewing doesn't enhance the fabric texture, except I do like the one I did with french knots.

It's made from 2.5 inch squares, fused onto cotton batting.  Then I cut small strips to lay over the squares.  The strips are hand sewn on with perle cotton.

I stuck the piece on top of a finished wall quilt.  I am not sure if it is finished or even if I will EVER finish it.
