Burning out

Submitting work to a magazine is a first for me so it was quite scary stuff ( positively a leap of faith), and a quilter I am definitely not! but I did feel comfortable with the technique I choose. The top layer of organdy was burned out with a soldering iron to reveal the design and the edges too which give the whole piece an aged effect. Again, 'keeping the faith' I recycled the copper wire from an old boiler! ... Knew it would come in handy one day!
