More colouring

Ages ago I did some doodling on paper and then on fabric. The fabric was drawn on with a permanent marker - I had a go at quilting them but it didn't look very good. This time, I did the doodling by quilting, then coloured it in with the pencils. Here is the small quilted piece.

And this is after colouring. It looks quite cute - in a cartoonish way - but I can't imagine doing anything much bigger than this. And the textile medium stains too. I foolishly assumed that it would dry clear, but no. So this was an interesting diversion, but it might be one of those techniques more suited to a neat-fingered perfectionist than an easily-distracted bodgy queen.
