Last of the Slasher Mysteries...

Cut through the top layers and not the base, this time the cuts are still on the diagonal but within the straight line squares
Some of the squares, I cut right through...
Washed as before..

Fantastic texture - the first time I saw this, it was used as a crocodile's back in a quilt
The last few bits of those pinks and oranges, cut into a stack of leaves and laid on top of a background piece, then stitched and washed as before.  Keep the shapes simple, but the grain is not so important on these

Stitched, then washed...

Tomorrow, something completely different...

  1. I saw the X slashes done with purple, lavender, blues and greens as a Hydrangea cushion. NICE.
