This is my second quilt that I have made featuring my collagraph prints. I have constructed the plates from empty cereal boxes from the recycling bin and also used string, white fabric and some paint.
I've explained the process in my latest article in the Magazine Quilting Arts Feb/March edition.
It is an easy project since you do not need any expensive equipment or a special press.
I LOVE to create art using recyclable material. Sometimes I incorporate it in the actual quilt or in this case I used it to create the printing plates.
With 50 weight thread I quilted free form feathers around the hearts. They are not perfect but I had fun drawing with the needle and thread without any planning or marking.
For the first time I used two kind of battings in the same quilt, cotton and split wool batting on the top. Love the texture that this combination creates.
The quilt is ready to be hung on *Valentine's Day*.
