I made the background of this quilt with the quilted sateen strips that were trimmed from “Particle Trails”. I butted the strips together and zigzag stitched them together to form the background.
I drew around cut out fireflies with chalk and free-motion stitched them with glow-in-the-dark thread. I fused up-cycled green silk drapes back to back and cut blade-shaped leaves. I stitched the blades along the center so the edges are loose.
