I sewed on some lovely beads that I had purchased at the quilt festival in Houston in 2012 and some small seashells. I machine-quilted a background. I applied it all to an 8 x 8 gallery wrapped canvas following instructions from Lyric Kinard's Tutorial-Mounting Textile Art . I had never mounted any work before and found that tutorial very easy to follow.
Here's a photo of a piece of the bed sheet from which the wipe rag was cut.

Not a great work of art, but a very freeing one to make and a refreshing one to look at in person. It has a lot of little nuances that catch my attention and its wonkiness gives me the feel of how it is walking on an uneven beach in the wind. I'm linking this to Off The Wall Friday where you can visit other art quilt blogs. Please make comments to let the artists know you stopped by.
