A spring challenge. The finished piece measuring 12×16 inches. I decided to pullout the Inktense Pencils and have some colouring time followed by free motion quilting. The design is drawn onto the fabric using a permanent marker, then coloured.
Using a black thread, it is free motion quilted over the black outlines, adding details such as leaf veins as you go. The background is then quilted in a cream to blend in with the fabric.
The design was inspired by a large panel I had completed last year.
