"Nature" Quiltie


This is my interpretation of this month’s quiltie theme on Unlimited Textiles – Nature. I took a rubbing of some bark with a crayon on white cotton which I then coloured with blue/green inks – the scan is not showing the colours too clearly. I then hand-stitched a small amount, not wishing to detract from the natural pattern of the bark.
