There was some interest in this piece which was making an appearance in the photo that I shared a couple posts ago. I have this hanging on the wall in my studio.

I made this mandala a couple years or so ago. I created it with fabric-backed paper, which I teach how to make in my book Creative Paper Quilts. I bonded the fabric-backed paper to a stiff interfacing, such as Peltex or Timtex. I trimmed the piece to the size I wanted and then started drawing my mandala on it. I imagine I found something round to create the circular shapes to start the mandala, but honestly, I don't remember.  The mandala is colored in with black Sharpie marker.  I finished the piece by fusing a backing fabric on and then zigzag stitching the edges.
