This piece of background fabric an accident. I put it on top of my ironing board to catch leftover dye when I was ironing dry pieces of Dupioni Silk using Terial Magic stiffener. I decided it was a fun border so I put a butterfly of Dupioni silk and leather (body) on it and then had fun quilting it.
Here you can see the background fill. I did circles and random things inside circles. I wasn't worried about being perfect so many of them are a little wonky looking.
For the top and bottom I used a 50 weight variegated Aurifil Cotton thread in pink that I received as an Island Batik Ambassador. It was so fun to watch it changing color and I like the look over the dye.
I hope you get to quilt today!
