A Happy Accident

When I was working with the heat press I made a pad of acrylic felt to soak in ferrous sulphate and dip the foliage in that I was printing with. At the end of the day I decided to use the pieces of the felt pad as an iron blanket in the press. The print was very pretty but in pieces. Wed Redman uses a process of cobbling pieces together and i was to experiment with this in my Winter quilt which is still on my design wall. I stitched the pieces together taking care to match the prints. then I used a single thread of gold metallic thread to herringbone over the joins. I added seed beads as berries and additional stitching to the top flower. this piece is meant to be portrait but that doesn't fit within the confines of the blog platform
