12 Days of Christmas

I have completed another design by Helen Godden, the 12 Days of Christmas.

The designs were drawn into cotton fabric using a black sharpie, then coloured with Inktense Pencils. I used a textile medium to release the colour so that bleeding would be minimal. Some ’bling’ was added with the gold lumiere paint in the striped frames and number outlines.

All the blocks were sewn together, adding sashing and borders before being quilted. The designs were outlined and detailed with black quilting, then the backgrounds and sashings were quilted with a cream polyester.
