This is my weekly journal quilt 31/52 2008, 6″ x 8″. I started with a painting clean up cloth as the background piece to give the surroundings some interest. I tried a solid color for the background, but this was more interesting and I really like the purple blotches of paint at the top of the piece. I then reached into my grab bag of fabrics that already have wonder under fused to them and pulled out the piece of purple batik and started cutting leaves. After I fused them down, I added stems to ground them, as they seemed to be floating a bit too much. Next I stitched/quilted the piece to the interfacing background with variegated threads. Lastly, I added the back and zigzagged around the edges.
This piece is for sale for $30 in my Etsy shop.
