My submission for a 12x12 art quilt challenge. The background is raw silk. The central portion is muslin, scrunched cheesecloth, white glue and water, painted with acrylic paint while wet. The piece is embellished with various stitches, using silk and cotton embroidery threads, perle cotton. Couched metallic threads. Free-motion machine stitching was done with metallic, rayon and cotton threads.
