This is my new 12x12 quilt...
The theme, picked by Brenda, was "Illumination". I chose to work on the buddhist meaning of this word. The background fabric was shibori-dyed.
I then drew a very simple shape of someone sitting and meditating, and made a stencil out of freezer paper. I used oil sticks to print this shape on my fabric.
I added hand embroidered stars to evoke light.
