This piece was only for testing technics from the The Painted Quilt book by Linda and Laura Kemshall. The cherries where stenciled using freezer paper and bleach and then couloured with paint sticks. I also tried out different methods of applying letters. As you can see I forgot about the word and added two ee 's instead of two R's. I used a varigated thread and two different quilting designs.

I seem to have a new bug its called blogging, because as you can see its very hard to get any work done round here. I wonder what a fur quilt would feel like.
