12 x 12 Fabric Techniques Quilt


When Lenna announced her 12 x 12 fabric techniques swap, I couldn't resist!! There are 40 participants in this swap where we create one 12 x 12 mini quilt using various techniques. My quilt has at least 11 techniques, from fabric paper to using paintsticks on fabric using a stamp rubbing plate as well as ink jet transfers to silk and printing on transparencies and distressing the edges of the transparency by burning it with a candle. The fabric paper I made while visiting my dear friend Patti in NH - and I've saved this fabric paper to use in special projects.
