This was a maching embroidery piece that was made by my friend Carol Wight Jones, some time before she passed away. I've decided to turn it into a small quilt for the 2017 quilt auction, at the Log Cabin Quilt Guild.
I thought I would start sharing the process here. I've used some Pigma pens to add some background.
& then freemotion quilted on Hobbs wool batting & a layer of backing fabric behind it, leaving room around the edges for a crazy border.
I dug through some of my silky fabrics, & found some I thought would compliment the piece.
This is how it looked after stitching it down.
Next I am machine quilting. I will post the rest as I get it done. I hope to have the quilting done soon, so I can take this with me as my travel project for our next vacation & get all of the hand embellishing done on it!
