Monarch Larvae Quilt
This art quilt was made using foundation piecing method. The pattern was drawn out on a large piece of paper. Each piece of fabric was ironed down after being stitched in place. Three strips were constructed, then the three lengths were stitched together. Originally I had planned to add a little bit of yellow-green with some stitching but have decided to leave it as is for the time being. Probably the most difficult and frustrating part of this quilt was NOT letting the black show through from the back where the black and white are stitched together. These are manufactured fabrics and not from my stash of hand dyed fabrics.
