I used thickened Fiber Reactive Procion  Dye and freezer paper to mono print like Melanie Testa on cotton. I printed the image using the same thickened dye on a lino cut I carved. Next I used discharge paste to clean up the teeth and eyes. I used Fabrico pens to draw the eyes.  Finally I embroidered and quilted it with perl cotton. The binding is silk.

About Helen Gregory

Helen Gregory is the managing editor for Quilting Arts Magazine and Cloth Paper Scissors. She has been quilting for years; however, her very first quilt, a hand-pieced Grandmother's Flower Garden design, is still not finished! Since joining the QA/CPS team, Helen's stash has grown to include many mixed-media items. Basically, Helen has crossed over and sees artful possibilities in, well, everything. Having worked for years in the quilting industry, both as an editor and in marketing, she is absolutely thrilled to be part of the QA team. Like everyone on the QA/CPS staff, she wears many hats, and was recently mistaken for Pokey's personal assistant during the taping of QA TV Season 4.
