The auction starts in mid September and quilts need to be in the US by 1 June - so a little while for a name!
I started with a piece of sun printed fabric that had been sprinkled with rock salt.

Once the design was painted I used some boofy batting and stitched along the outline of the shapes. The batting was then cut away and a layer of cotton batting added along with the backing.
The design was outlined with a Madeira metallic thread and the rest densely quilted.

The piece was then faced. Now back to a name ...
