Was thinking about ways to have the image blend better with the quilting and thought I’d try quilting first then printing.
Should have used a better image and planned the quilting to gel with the image.
Did partially work in that the thread did dye with image but the texture is still very prominent. Since my images are really photos I would prefer a flatter look although I still want it to be a quilt.
Things I did learn is that when I bleached away the cyanotype the solarfast was there underneath.
I have put back the image with Yorkshire tea.
