fabric collage

I made this collage with a drawing of my son Mathijs. I'd made a thermofaxscreen from the drawing and some of his early writing and printed them onto some monoprinted fabrics. With these fabrics I made a collage, adding some painted scrim. I layered it onto batting and a backing fabric and stitched horizontal lines to keep everything in place, and appliqued the print of the drawing.
