Burnt Leaf Quilt - Work in Progress

I'm working on the final version of my burnt leaf quilt. In the last couple of days I have fused organza with a soldering iron to make a stripy fabric.

I cut this diagonally and then fused it to some felt before cutting out the leaf shape. No sewing or glue here, just melted together with the soldering iron.

I then distressed the leaves front and back with the heat gun.

I'm now working out how to incorporate some eco-dyed silks, lino prints and vintage paper with the leaves into the final design.
