Quilt no 40


I'm calling this 'Doodle' as that's what it started as! I traced the design onto smooth cotton sheeting pressed onto freezer paper for support. I coloured using wax crayons and pressed to set the colour. I've only recently discovered this technique and love the mottled and shaded effects you can get by layering 2 or more colours. It is backed with one of my hand dyed fabrics and is free motion quilted with cotton and machine embroidery threads. I added some beads for extra interest.
