Lately I have been doing a lot of experimenting with working with a flat quilted surface. Working flat with the intention that the finished product will hang on the wall is a challenge for me because I'm used to working with either functional objects with structure like books and boxes. I am enjoying it though because it's a new challenge and I do love a challenge...
