Hard to believe that this is the final challenge--it's been a great year's worth of designs, projects, techniques, and lots of practice. For this final challenge, I decided to do a combination of the bonus tutorial presented by Teri Lucas, along with the monthly December challenge presented by Patsy Thompson.
I don't have a printer at home, so I used my printer at work -- I ironed some Kona white cotton on some freezer paper, then ran it through a color copier, which printed out so lightly that I couldn't use it. So I decided to try it on my B&W printer, and this is what I ended up with. Since I did this last week, before taking almost two weeks off, I didn't have any other options at the time, but I really kind of like it.
I used a dark charcoal grey background, some Aurifil white thread in the star, some Aurifil grey on the background, and some black Madiera thread in the area right around the star.
I did freeform feathers around the outside, which I love to do.
Another fun month, so sad to see it end. Thanks, SewCalGal!
