Here is what I made during the demonstration. A valentine.
I found the quilted neutral background with pink border in my stash. It was a leftover from another project.
I drew a basic heart shape onto some paper. I like to use Carol Doak's Foundation Paper for this process as it tears away fairly easily. Although you could use plain copy paper.
I pinned the heart drawing to the quilted background and stitched over the shape with black thread. Next I removed the paper. After the paper was removed I did some more thread sketching and added lots of details. I colored the shape with the crayons and then using a paint brush I wet the area with some textile medium. The small quilt measures 7" x 6.5".
