How to carry on?
I'm trying some pieced border around the dragons. The quilting has become quite structural as I wanted it to be. I used MEZ and Anchor embroidery cotton this time because I have a stash in colors to suit the dragons. In this light, the quilting seems to dominate over the painting, but this is an effect I wanted to get. I want this piece to have a more aged look than what I usually do. Rust and copper green are the shades I want to prevail.
I'm not sure about the pieced part. Or should I make a quilt entirely out of painted fabric?
Update. The colors are said to be washfast after ironing. I haven't tested them yet, but I trust them.
