Green Fabric Collage

This is the start of my second entry in the Pacific Northwest Quilt Festival which is coming up this weekend in Tacoma.

I actually began this piece last March.  I used the 12" wide roll of Mistyfuse to create wide bands of color across my teflon ironing table.  This table is about 50" wide, so the pieces ended up being a consistent 50".  I was cleaning out my overloaded scrap drawer and was color grouping.  I thought these three went together well, so I fused them to a piece of batting, then did a free motion zig-zag stitch around all exposed edges.  This creates a nice texture.
