Mixed Media #1
This little quilt was made following a tutorial in Angie Hughes' book titled Stitch, Cloth, Paper & Paint. See Construction Techniques below.
I then added some decorative thread and a border of my hand dyed fabric. A skinny satin ribbon was zigzagged in place to frame the piece.
The border was machine quilted with gold rayon thread using many different free motion patterns.
