Photo Friday : Dervish

We tend to think of lutradur as a fabric we use on its own, or with a different fabric below it.  Here, though, hand dyed cotton has been fused on as a top layer, to describe a dervish type figure blowing its way through the quilt.  I stitched this one first, as suggested by the marks below the lutradur, but felt that it needed more than that to have adequate visual impact. 

I'd really love to feature YOUR work here... if you have something suitable, please do send me an image and a short artists statement, telling us about the thinking behind the piece, and the techniques you used.  I'll link it to your blog or website.
