    Hi Kat, I painted a portrait with Tsukeniko inks and framed it with crazy quilting for a wall hanging. The portrait is the little photo that shows up next to my name. I will try to post a photo of the whole quilt. - Dawn

It is a black velvet skirt, with CQ inserts in the side and back kick pleats. also appliqued to the skirt surface as if the pleat were turned back...so to speak. There is a little pocket, too. I keep meaning to make a jacket or waistcoat...
