Art Squared

The word for the Art Squared challenge this time was Icon which to me means a religious symbol. I searched the internet for inspiration and found a cross that was close to what I had in mind. They wanted $10 for me to download it! I picked up a piece of printer paper, folded it and cut my own cross.

It's foiled using copper colored foil and edged by machine with a metallic braid I had. Then it felt like the quilting should be in copper metallic thread. It's 17" square.

I learned a couple of things about foiling. Where the foil paper is folded in packaging, it doesn't foil well. A metallic pen can fill in empty spots.
