Resurrect

Soooooo....take a piece of an old quilt that is so worn portions of the top fabrics have been eaten away by acid, many washings and time...overlay it with pieces of silk organza (trapping wooden buttons inside) and an ancient tablecloth then free motion stitch away. Once done, wash it in Synthrapol and then overdye with a luscious golden brown color. I plan to add some hand stitched accents, maybe some beads (but maybe not), maybe a bit of metallic paint. The texture in this incredible.

Some of my favorite colors - beautiful!

FYI - take a peek at my blog, Denise! I'm giving away one of my small art quilts as a gift! I've been absent from fiberspace for a few months, so I thought this might be a good way to return!
