Black cotton whole cloth freehand discharged with painted bleach mixture. I thought the dribbled bleach droplets enhanced the overall effect. Machine quilted on domestic Bernina Activa 130.  Have you ever felt you are so out of place, so strange, so different from everyone around you that you might as well be an alien from another planet?
