Small art quilt with rusty stars

One of a series of small art quilts made for a collaborative project – this was the first, and was my first attempt at fabric art of any kind, sewing is always something I've been a little afraid of 🙂

the material for this (plain unbleached cotton) was hand dyed using colour wash sprays, then lightened up a bit with pale pealescent pigment ink stippled through some sequin waste

the brown velour at the bottom was distressed a little at the edge with a hot stencil cutter

the tree was rubber stamped, but it came out really badly so I painted it over the top with black acrylic paint

all the sewing was done by hand

this measures around 6" square
