Cotton fabrics, hand stenciled with fabric paint, raw edge appliqued, machine quilted with cotton threads, hand embroidered.

My youngest daughter, Emma, did a collage art project in grade school where they created stenciled wallpaper-like papers using paint, then cut out the shapes for their picture. I thought the result was so charming and the patterned papers reminded me of fabric.
