Designer: Martha Berry, her drawing for a class, used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: In addition to melted crayon coloring, I added some hand painting with Tsukineko inks and stitched stamen on some of the flowers with colonial knots in pearl cotton. The piece is machine appliquéd, embellished and quilted, and a piping is added to the border.

Artist Statement: My friend Martha Berry and I were teaching a series of quick classes - sort of a make it, take it format. She drew the vase and some flower shapes which each person colored using the melted crayon technique.
