Go Green! returned

Go Green! by Quilting Arts Magazine requested entries that were 5 inches square and had a recycled theme. Mine was hand quilted and included many recycled blue batik tidbits, recycled window screen for a design element and binding, recycled beads from previous projects, recycled gold embossing powder and a recycled piece cut into a spiral from brass ornaments made last Christmas. Upon it's return I noticed how more contrast would have been better. So, I've gold embossed the verse on a lighter fabric and will attached over the original one. I'm thinking of sewing it to a painted canvas but not sure what color to paint it yet.

Julie, your 5" piece is beautiful, especially when I click on it and get a huge photo with much detail.

What is "Go Green"? Is it a QA magazine? Haven't heard of that one.

I hope to see you Tuesday.

I like these a lot! I also like the idea of doing something like this to get into hand quilting. Thanks for the inspiration!

I like the better contrast too.
