Default quilted Mandala

Hey everyone,
Here's a pic of a quilted Mandala that I recently finished. It's 26.5" x 26.5". I layered a piece of muslin over some thin batting and used rulers to quilt the main design, then colored it with Inktense pencils and fabric medium. Then I added some more batting and a backing and re-quilted the main design and added the filler designs in. After the quilting was done I used 2mm rattail and the overcast stitch my sewing machine to bind it and mounted it on a piece of foam core which I glued to a 24" square stretcher frame. It was a lot of fun to do and I think I'll do some more of them.

thanks for looking,

Rob: That came out amazing. I just donated my Irena Blum? book that featured that technique, but still have my Inktense pencils and the medium to try some more someday. I love the fact that you mounted it as a wall piece to admire all day. You did such gorgeous work. Thanks for sharing.
