Mixed Media Paper Quilt #2
Last night I made this paper/fabric quilt. I used some decorative paper for the flowers, pages from an old book for the leaves, inkjet prints of my little paintings (egg, sprout & bee), a dress pattern, a collaged xeroxed piece of fabric (root) and textile paint. This piece was stitched first and then fused to peltex. I painted some fabric with gold, cut it with pinking shears and fused it on for a binding. Sewing the buttons on the flowers are so unlike me, but I thought they needed a little extra something and these lime shell buttons seemed like just the thing.
