Dimensions 9 3/4 " X 21"
I used every bit of a fat quarter for the back fabric.
I like the variety of textures in the batiks and added hand stitches to add texture to the brown silk.
In keeping with the nature theme, I had this piece of drift wood that I picked up years ago.
Here is a closer view of the stones and hand stitching. The stones are mounted and stitch on pieces of painted and heated Tyvek repurposed from the mail.
I wanted to be sure the backing wouldn't pucker or warp so I free-motion quilted it evenly with a pebble stick pattern.
I am off to use more of the silk in another triple layer piece. Stay tuned for another nature theme.
