The fourth and final in the series (so far). This one was painted with thickened dyes over a flour resist -- click here to read that post.
I used wool batting and cotton threads.
The beetle is black Misty-fuse under a bit of foil for sparkle -- because you can't get sparkle with dyes. I used 50 weight cotton Auriful thread for the legs and around its body.
And the back...for Beth and Lynne.
The four quilts will be hung together on Monday at Olbrich Gardens in a show featuring work by Madison Contemporary Fiber Artists. The show will run through April. I will go next weekend and photograph the show and then share some of the photos here.
