Sheryl Meech – Circle(s)
Circles was inspired by a documentary about life in the deepest part of the ocean. Some of the creatures that live so deep were brilliantly coloured with amazing floating tentacles.
I created my circles from snippets of fabrics of similar colours and fused them to a similar coloured circle. Free motion stitched over them to anchor them in place and them appliqued them to the background. The background fabric is a piece of hand dyed very dark Aubergine with hints of green not really visible in the photos. I hand stitched different stitches around the coloured circles to give the feeling of tentacles. The ethereal circles are painted vliesofix. I straight line quilted to make the circles stand out.
