This collage is intended to be a 12" square - I am thinking I will wrap it over 12" x 12" stretcher bars. At least that is what I am thinking, and that is why I have folded the edges back. I like the hand stitching and I think I will do more of that. I also like the machine quilting in a diamond pattern - it is subtle but helps keep things together . I built this collage on a piece of batting, so it was sort of fragile. The red is from the lining of a kimono.
