Irene MacWilliam - upside down theme

But that was not the end of it. Sometimes there are quilts who just want a bit more. I painted a canvas and glued the quilt on top of it. This is the final result:

A Painted Face!

Have really enjoyed this month's topic albeit rather late.  Hand drawn letters, coloured in with a variety of fabric paints and then appliqued onto a piece of hand dyed "grass" cotton.

Must apologise for being late for December, a multitude of niggling things have got in the way of a full day's sewing over the last couple of weeks.  I am almost there but have a Linus Day tomorrow and don't want to miss it, it's a good project and well worth supporting.  Hopefully back on Saturday!
