This is the second in the series. I painted the image with thickened dyes on cotton fabric. There is a more informative (read: loquacious) post about the dye-painting here.
I used a wool batt and cotton threads for the quilting.
The beetle was pretty blah -- you can't get sparkle with dyes -- so I used a bit of black Misty-fuse and some foil to give it that shine.
And the backside. I mentioned in a previous post (here) that I purchased some inexpensive cotton that's a bit heavier than the stuff I use for most of my dyeing and piecing (and other evil experiments...). I dyed it especially for hiding stuff on backsides. Pretty slick, huh? Bwahahahaha....!
