Good bye REJECT!
This is a rejected piece that I had jammed under my work table so no one else could see it. I'm embarrassed to even show it now. Two years ago it was originally dyed after applying potato dextrin resist. Then I went at it with textile paints and markers, then did some machine quilting. At that point I was totally disgusted with it and tossed it under the table. I didn't throw it in the garbage because there were small bits of it I still liked.
After reading about cutting up your rejects on the SAQA yahoo group I decided I was ready to give it a go. I was unsure what to do because I had already quilted it so it was kind of thick to piece back together. I solved that problem by not joining any of the quilted pieces to each other.
This is my result. It really looks better in person, you can't see the part I like the best, which is the light strips that go vertically. They look like a topographical map from the potato dextrin resist area.
