Prayer Banners

I loved the interaction that was occurring between the prayer flags I was working on, so I turned them into two prayer banners instead.



I seem to do long, skinny pieces over and over, and they are so hard to photograph. Most of these fabrics, the discards from a San Francisco fashion designer, were a gift from my friend Cindy. They are so gorgeous that I wanted them to be appreciated as they are with little done to them besides a few connections made.




The colors are so different for me. Soft, dream colors.

I love them as banners Robin!!!! (I loved them as prayer flags too). Must say, I am drawn to longer pieces too...maybe because I'm short and squat!

Just beautiful and how lovely to have used those gorgeous fabrics from your friend this way.

One of the things I really love about making textile art is the freedom to play with colours and patterns I would not normally think to use or make, so I totally understand the fun you have with using these tones you might not normally choose for yourself. I find your grouping and attachment of them really satisfying. It gives me great pleasure to gaze at them as digital images, so I can only imagine how good it would be to see and (may I?) touch them in person.

Your banners reflect your wonderful fabric collection and eye for color and texture- wonderful.
