Wholecloth Quilts In The Making

I’ve begun to take some of the  pieces that I printed this summer and transform them into wholecloth quilts.  This one I’m calling “Solar” and stitched it both by machine and by hand. It’s  about 14″ X 21″ inches.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.  This was sun printed using Jacquard Solar Fast Ink.

    1. Thanks! I usually placed a sheet of acrylic over the top if it was windy, at least for awhile. Also, I used large acrylic trays to place the while thing in before I applied the leaves and, to some extent, this keeps them a bit protected (the kind you buy as a molded picture frame)or placed the trays over the cloth.
