“Join the Chorus”

"Join the Chorus"

"Join the Chorus" (Copyright 2024 by Susan Brubaker Knapp) 18x16" Cotton fabric, ink, acrylic textile paint, cotton thread, cotton batting. Raw-edge applique, free-motion machine quilting. 

My periodical cicada obsession continues. I had already finished this piece, and sewn on the facing, when I decided it wasn't done yet. It just looked too simple, and the oak leaf design I'd quilted in the background was confusing, and not reading as leaves. So I pulled out my trusty paint and painted the background with a darker blue and some metallic gold/green.
