Miniature Whole Cloth on Hand Dyed Fabric

I had a busy week and wheew!  I just needed to play.  So yesterday I pulled out a piece of fabric I hand dyed last summer and had been saving and just let whatever came to me happen.  This is how it turned out...





I used Robison Anton thread and quilted this on the Juki.  No rulers, but I did make a few freezer paper stencils to create the curved edges and also to mark the circular center.  It took me about two and a half hours to mark and maybe, eight or ten hours to quilt between yesterday and today.  I also used to layers of batting - Hobbs 80/20 with Tuscany Wool layered on top...while wool is a pain in the you know what - I JUST LOVE how it quilts up!!  :)

Your quilting is gorgeous as well as your hand dyed fabrics! I read you are using Ray Anton threads and that is what I use! All of my machines love the thread! It's beautiful, doesn't lint and has a nice sheen! I don't hear of too many others who use it, so it was nice to read that you use it and like it too!
