Trunk Show - on its way

I've just posted off my quilt for SAQA's 2014 Anniversary Trunk Show.

This mini quilt is only 7in by 10in.  I've used my current favourite technique - freezer paper stencils and paintsticks.  

To add a bit of dimension, an extra layer of batting has been added behind some of the squares, stitching around these squares then cutting away the excess batting (Trapunto).  Then layering cotton batting and a backing, and heavily quilting between all the squares.

I like the vibrant colour and added texture that the paintsticks give, while the quilting adds dimension.  So much in such a small space!
