It's reveal week so I can show you the quilt I made for the online challenge. The image of the young woman is me in a picture taken long, long ago in one of my former lives. I scanned the photo-b&w 8x 10 that I hand colored-cropped it and printed it onto Transfer Artist Paper. Thank you Leslie Riley for this wonderful stuff. The image was ironed onto pima cotton, trimmed, then appliqued by machine to the background, a piece of medium weight muslin that I monoprinted several months ago.
Other design elements, small pieces of hand painted fabric were collaged to the background and the whole thing was quilted with batting and backing fabric.
Certain areas were enhanced with colored pencil, paint, and hand stitching.
