While pulling fabrics for this month's challenge, I found this piece of hand-dyed violet sky. Being an old "X-Files" junkie, it didn't take a huge stretch of the imagination to create worlds Mulder would love.
After piecing was finished, I realized that there was no logical way that made sense, except with these billions and billions of compulsive little stitches, to quilt the background. I think I'm going to break down and use the sewing machine on my next one! The truth? Very glad we had two months to complete this challenge!
16x20 - Commercial batiks, hand-dyed cottons and cheesecloth, cotton batting and backing, perle cotton threads, glass beads, hand-pieced and hand quilted.
