Tribal pillow cover, originally uploaded by wordnerd411.

This began life as a challenge to make a design using split complementary colors which are yellow, orange and blue.

The blue fabric was discharged with thiox to get the pink tones and white lines.

It is raw edge applique made by folding the fabric and cutting the same way you make paper snowflakes. I see a bird, a fish and figures from a totem pole, but I expect everyone sees their own thing.

Later I wanted to make a very vivid pillowcase to help me get used to carrying a lumbar cushion around with me so I enlarged it into a cushion cover and on the other side my phone number is written in indelible marker.
