Tulip Fabric Collage

I have been doing a variety of artwork, so I have not been timely in posting. Using a photo from my own garden, I sewed this 12" x 12" Tulip Garden with Batik scraps, a lot of them donated, on heavy weight interfacing with watersoluable interfacing over it, stitched with Superior's MonoPoly. I then added a backing of batting and quilted it again with Superior Metallic thread. I had lots of issues with the MonoPoly breaking so I have to tweak that. I had only excellent results with the metallic thread. Now I have to figure out how to mount this- in a frame, on a canvas or what. That is always the hard part for me.

I love it! I'm so glad that the scraps are coming in handy.

Hi, This is so beautiful. Thank you for showing it. I am not a quilter, and I am wondering how you get the edges of the pieces to stay so neat and not fray.
