I started with a star which had been transferred onto fabric using transfer crayons.
I appliqued it onto some green fabric using straight stitched raw edge applique in a variegated thread. I cut away most of the green fabric and then appliqued it onto the yellow fabric using gold metallic thread. All the fabrics in this sample are hand dyed.
I then added pale green borders. The yellow square was free motion quilted and the border was quilted with star motifs in the variegated thread.
I am quite pleased with the result - it is more free than my usual samples and I like the way the design has been built up out of several layers.
