My FANE group had an exhibit in a separate room at my guild's quilt show last year titled, Totems. They were 8 feet by 18 inches and hung from the ceiling. The exhibit was a huge success so Jane Davila, our fearless leader, came up with the idea of kimono shaped art. She is making T-shaped stands on which they will be draped. They don't have to be quilted and can even be just surface design cloth.
I immediately thought of shibori, thinking that I would make something new, but I got out all the blue and white shibori that I had done on my own, way before the Jan Meyers-Newbury class that I took last fall. I played around with a lot of different patterns and designs and this is what I came up with. This is the piece open with the center section being 16" x 54"and the side panels 9" x 22". The circles are stitched shibori that are pieced in. The center panel will make a great table runner and is just the right size.
This is how it will look draped over the T-shaped stand. I am in the process of hand stitching circles in a running stitch in white thread, sashiko style, around the shibori circles on the side panels. I am not going to quilt it, but will just line it with dark blue on the sides and white in the center.
