July TIF

This months TIF idea was 'half way mark' and this colour palette. I tried as much as possible to match the colours , NOT using Photoshop this time but fabrics from my stash. Using ideas generated through the Studio Journals course, I applied 'Frottage' (rubbings) from an Indian Print Block to the fabrics using a crayon and then quilted from the back. I'd forgotten I'd used this print block to print out some fabrics several years ago. So the 'marks' are both crayon and stitch. It's been satisfying to do something totally by hand

I like this a lot Mags, especially the raw edges of the fabric and the stitching.

What a great idea. The block you used is wonderful.
