    Second Quarter Challenge: Nuno Felt Surface Design

    The second quarter is already here, I am not sure how that happened. I think using fabric as a surface design instead of a base is a good idea for the second quarter. Use cotton or silk or rayon or what ever you like to make some surface designs. You can make texture or pattern. Try a mosaic? (I think one is Zed’s) or making a picture? I made this to practice machine embroidery on.
