I started by making small pieces of fabric from scraps, covered with organza which was machine machine embroidered to hold them together.
Then I worked on the quilt sandwich - the backing fabric which had the design drawn on to it, then the wadding and then a layer of artificial silk. Placing each piece of 'fabric' very carefully
Finally I cut away each chamber with a soldering iron. the only problem here, was that the organza fabric was immediately underneath the artificial silk and had a strong tendency to hug the soldering iron as I worked on the top layer!!!!!!
I was fairly happy with the end result, but I'm amazed at the variety of interpretations that the other members of 12bythe dozen came up with.
