"Cha Cha Cha" Postcard

"Music" is the theme for the latest mini group postcard. The first idea came to me was movement, which means dancing. I didn't want to make a literal interpretation so, I thought of manipulating fabric to give the feeling of movement. I've seen art quilts that have wavy pleats and thought it would be fun to try. First I painted free form stripes on pfd fabric but the painted fabric was too stiff to manipulate and sew.  Then I decided to use some bright stripe fabric I had in my stash. It was easier to work with.
