Quilt Entry - SAQA Trunk Show

Here is my first completed quilt in 2014. I actually started this about 2 weeks ago and then it sat and waited for me until I could return to it. 

In the first photo you can see how the quilt looks with just some stenciled color applied. It is also quilted with black thread at this point.

In the next photo I have finished with painting the surface to alter the impact of the stenciled designs. 

After paint

The quilt is quite small, measuring only 10" x 7". I made it as my entry in the 2014 SAQA Trunk Show. I need to decide if I want to do anything further around the edges. Currently it only has a single line of stitching. These trunk show quilts will all be mounted on a black backing board.
