Quiltart Quinceanero: Phyllis Cullen

In honor of 15 years of ideas and inspiration, I made a birthday cake. I used many techniques I learned about in this group. They include surface design techniques including painting, hand dying, watercolor pastel crayons, inks, acrylic monoprinting, tucking, strip weaving rusting, discharging, marbleizing, and stamping. Free motion quilted.  I then added embellishments including glitter, hot fix crystals, beading, yarn couching and felting, , adding a leather strip, a metal chain,  a crocheted flower, a sequined bird, silk ribbon flowers, and a bit of lace that I hand painted with inks and watercolor pencils.

And a special congratulations, QA, to your mother Judy. Thanks.
