Fused and machine piecing, free-motion quilting and embroidery, couched fibers, ink shading
The idea to create my quilt as a postage stamp came to me quickly when this color was presented to us. I envisioned what I wanted and sketched it to actual size.
The quilt I'm officially submitting is the second version I made (shown above). There were many things I wasn't happy with on my first version (shown below). The chartreuse background didn't turn out quite like I had pictured in my mind. Next, I wasn't happy with how I had quilted the background. And the outer edge had some areas that bothered me.
While I think the outer edge on the first version looks more postage-stamp like, the second version was easier and is a little more stable.
