Quilt

This is a small quilt of about 20 inches square. It started with a monoprint on a white coarsely woven fabric.
I layered painted cheesecloth and braid on it then stitched some of the spirals by hand with perle cotton. It still needed something, so I cut Ultrasuede spirals and applied then to the top.

It is so busy that It needed a simple border. It is machine quilted echoing the spirals in the center and having straight line quilting on the border.
