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.
