I had never heard of Wilhelmina Barnes Graham and enjoyed discovering an artist I knew nothing about. I particularly liked her line drawings, and wanted to try something similar. Originally I planned to use a yellow and grey colour scheme and had chosen all my fabrics and threads, but whilst I was searching for something else entirely unrelated to this challenge, I came across a piece of Bondaweb which I had painted several years ago, and which I had stuck to a piece of butter muslin. It seemed perfect for this. I covered it with a layer of sheer fabric before quilting as the bondaweb was coming away in places.
I'm not sure how well it shows up in the photo, so I am also including a close up.
