Quiltie, Postcard

Here is the July Quiltie for the Yahoo group I'm in that is called Unlimited Textiles. The theme this month is Slash and Burn. Nothing is burned on this one. Every time I try the technique, I don't like what I did--not to mention the fumes even working outside. Since taking Sharonb's Studio Journal class at http://www.joggles.com/ , I seem to be working in snowflakes. I folded the wool and slashed into it to make the design. Behind the holes I put lame and quilted with copper metallic.


These is the postcard for July for the Calendar Girls http://calendargirls2008.blogspot.com The background is dyed fabric with hand painted lace over it which is hand beaded. The silk flowers are held down with tiny buttons.

I love the slashed piece Sandy - blue and gold make magic! The pc is so pretty with the beaded lace - very feminine. Val
