Ghost Quilting

I call it Ghost Quilting. I start with a square or rectangle of printed fabric as the focus, then I add borders all around and imagine what is out off the edge of the focus fabric and complete the motifs with only stitching or with Neocolor II watercolor wax pastels plus stitching. The focus fabric can be fused onto the center of a larger piece or borders can be sewn onto the center.

 The red pineapple piece has only stitching to complete the picture.

 The yellow pineapple piece is enhanced with Neocolor II plus stitching.
 In progress, showing the stitching that will complete the picture.
The first step--adding Neocolor II to extend the picture into the border.
