Nodding in the Dark

Quilt Documentation #118

This little quilt is the result of a monoprint made on black cotton using metallic paints. It measures 13” x 14½ “ and was made in 2011.

Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the print before stitching.

I stitched green leaves and stems over the splotches of brown and green and used a variegated yellow gold thread for the flowers. The background was stippled using angled straight lines instead of curvy stitches.

Once quilted, the piece was faced using bias corners, a sleeve and an label printed on ExtravOrganza .
