Reminder for Attaching wash away pieces

When I assembled the components, they didn't look integrated so I took some created fabric made from layering wash away and lots of bits and pieces of scrap - this had originally been going to be the rubbish mountain but it took too much emphasis away from the woman so I ended up using the eco dyed woollen blanket piece. I randomly scattered this across the front of the quilt making sure it was not in a straight line. I placed wash away over the scraps so that I could machine quilt randomly over them without catching the presser foot. However the layers were so dense in some places that I bent several needles before I decided to lock stich by hand in lots of random places to hold the scraps in place. It has given a much better three dimensional effect to the quilt. It is finished now and I have submitted my photos but cannot show the quilt here until it has been jury accepted/rejected
