March ATC's

 For the March CQFA meeting I managed to make some just-in-time ATC's.  I started out with some discharged and dyed fabric with some added shapes on top.

 A whole lot of stitching later, here's how it looks.  You can see the thing that will be added a bit later, paper lace.
 A little closer up on the stitching, some was straight stitch, some zig zag with variegated rayon thread.
 And here they are once they're chopped up and stitched around the edges.  Sometimes the fun part is deciding where to cut, a sort of  a last step design exercise.
 Closeups of the individual ATC's so you can see how the paper lace looks along with the quilted surface.

In this case, the more stitching the better!
