I gathered some of the fabric and lace I've dyed over the past several days and began sewing.
I've auditioned various items for this quiltlet, and have eliminated the pieces you see in the upper right side of the photo. I've already sewn the center assembly, using a piece of gifted hand dyed wet wipe, some of my hand dyed paper, and a photo printed on photo paper, over which I've sewn brown tulle. The background is some of my onion skin dyed fabric, while the pink fabric on the left and lace under the tape measure were dyed using alcohol and ink. Other than assembling and sewing the various elements, nothing is attached. I have not started the backing or added batting, either. This piece measure approximately 8.5 inches by 11 inches. For some reason, I believe it needs something more. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
