Translating the layered designs into embroidery

For the first 6 images, I used the same fabrics, but in different order. Rather interesting effects ... they would be attractive used together in a quilt.
I found it heavy going on the fingers using a hoop, so there is a bit of rippling. (I have developed impressive callouses on my fingertips!)

Bonded Fabric Designs

I have numbered each sample and they are shown in numerical order.
I have taken advantage of negative pieces of bonded fabrics and used them in the designs.
Cottons, silks, synthetics, tissue paper, bonded-bits-on-fabric, and painted Heat-n-Bond have all been used in the samples.

Stamped and bonded fabics

Here is a selection of two bonded fabrics (top left), and stamped fabrics. I left some of each fabric unstamped, and most have desins stamped on in two colour ranges, orange/orange-red and blue/turquoise.
