Journal quilt

Here's the first of my Forest Floor Journal quilts. There will be four and the deadline is next Tuesday! Others in this year's series are posted on my withoutpins blog.
Techniques include fabric dyeing over shot cotton, thermofax screen printing, block printing from blocks made from my photographs and image transfer from my photos. The latter did not come out quite as expected because I should have used transfer paper for dark fabrics, however the less opaque effect seems to me to mirror the transient nature of fungi.
I do like the shapes of the Shaggy Ink Caps, sometimes known as Lawyers Wigs!
