Soul Fishing

This is another 30cm square art quilt for this years Unique Stitching challenge. The theme this time was self portrait which i decided to interpret through symbolism. The sunset is tsukineko inks applied with their foam applicators which is really easy to use and stays nice and bright (though think i did a couple of coats on this one). I used them on a white on white print and the print area shows through the ink so you can get some nice textures that way.

The rest of the quilt is a variety of fabrics, cotton, silk velvet and holographic printed stretch synthetic all fused together with vliesofix and then mounted on a piece of cotton covered timetex. The apples are metal foil.
