The challenge was to recycle materials to make a mini-quilt five inches square. I use a piece of raw canvas for the drying cloth to place just-painted Lutradur monoprints on. The paint is usually quite thick and a lot soaks through to the canvas. I cut out a 5" piece of this canvas, embellished it with beads, silk floss, and other threads leftover from finished projects. I used a scrap of white wool felt instead of regular batting and backed the quilt with a scrap piece of gold lame'. If the editor of the magazine likes my quilt, it might end up in the magazine (with others, of course)!
