What materials did you use? fabric, prismacolour pencils, textile medium and normal other sewing/quilting supplies

What are you most proud of? I like the layering of the stencils. Normally I would have just quilted a filler around the basket, but after Cindy's class I decided to try adding dimension by having the feathered heart go under the basket and into the border. I like the effect asI think it does add interest. Not sure about the colouring in though.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try new techniques by making something small eg a cushion or mug rug rather than just scraps

This is just gorgeous. To reiterate Deb's comments basket really looks like it is sitting on top of the feathers. Awesome job. I haven't tried layering stencils yet but its next on my list. thanks for the inspiration.

Thanks - I tried trapunto for the first time for the basket, so I think that and the shading of the background helps with the illusion of the basket on top.

Awesome! Now I know what to do with my prismacolor pencils and textile medium...all these practice blocks I've been doing on muslin will be colored in! Have you tried laundering the pencil/medium combo? LOVE it!

Haven't tried washing it. I think I have washed a sample before and it came out fine.

beautiful use of dimension and color. I especially love the background fill around the feathers.
