Just a Bit Dotty

Today is reveal day on Fiberactions' blog -- and this is my entry for the "impression" challenge...called Dot Matrix.

Fitting in with my direction of using wholecloth in more quilts, this is one piece of printed (hence, fabric that has impressions made on it) cotton.  It was printed with a textured roller, also with something underneath the fabric, and finally stamped.  And lightly beaded after quilting.  The border is raw silk that was also printed two or three times.

I'm not sure yet whether I'll frame this quilt or not -- although I've framed most of the other pieces in this collection of challenge quilts.  Not even sure whether I prefer it in vertical or horizontal orientation.  Time will tell.

Great, as usual Connie! How large is this piece? That's a lot of stop-and-start quilting! I hope you will show this piece in its entirety and in the orientation you choose. It's yummy!

Oooh, I hadn't noticed the beads before. I like the added texture & Glam!
