Off the edge quilting - purple


Here is my off the edge quilting piece for this months so scrappy 2015 challenge.
It started out with the off white 6" square piece of decorator fabric laid on plain white.
Using a pencil and then dark thread, the motifs are drawn out onto the white and expanded.
Background is free motion quilted white on white in a meander design.


Lastly the motifs are colored in using watercolor pencils and fabric paint. Some beads are added to the dragonfly. I think I may add even more. Dragonflies should have lots of bling - don't cha think?

  7. Could we see a partially colored in piece next time? I'd like to see your work in the middle of the process... Somewhere between just quilted and fully colored, please. I think it would be interesting to see the difference as the layers are added. Thanks!
