Heart House

I put this collage up on Flickr, so I figured I should share it here too. When I re-mounted “Pink House,” I consoled myself by immediately starting in on another collage stitched directly to the canvas. It was a complete coincidence that the only appropriate house I had left was pink-ish too.


This was also a great opportunity to work with my new screen printed house fabric from Ink & Spindle. It’s a bit more sparse than my usual, but it didn’t want or need any more. I like it.

Heart House, 12″x12″ Painted fabric house by me and hand printed house fabric from Ink & Spindle, further colored by me, stitched to gallery wrapped unprimed linen canvas, with a few other fabrics and fibers too.

  1. Lovely! Are you saying that all of this was stitched on the canvas as it was already stretched on the bars? First, I thought that’d be hard – but then realized it would be like using a embroidery hoop, which I can imagine…but does the linen get stretched as you’re working with it, so that things are no longer taut? I wrap a lot of my quilts around stretcher bars, but always at the end…

  2. I’m enjoying your posts about the canvas background idea. Loved your house series ever since I saw your first while in Germany, but especially like your new canvas idea!
