Vagabonds Challenge - 2020 - Part 2

This is a continuation of a post about the Vagabonds Challenge for 2020.

I had so many ideas in my head for this quilt, and it was very difficult to narrow them down to the quilt that I wanted to make.  My intention was to try a different technique, or a combination of techniques, to give the look of a 3 layered quilt with cut outs.  I don't know which layer will be which, so I decided that I would try to make up some sample pieces.  Then figure out what I would do for the full size quilt.

I knew that I wanted to print the picture in several colors onto printer friendly fabric.  Here's what those prints looked like.

I don't know if I will sew these together or cut them into pieces and piece them with other fabric.

Here's what I want in the three layers:
  Circular cutouts with some sheerness and some thread embellishment.
  A layer of the printed fabric.
  Some kind of stuffing to add dimension to the circles.
  A layer of painted fabric, also with circular cutouts.

I made one of the potential layers out of two layers of tulle, and many different colors of thread, yarn and ribbon.  these were stitched down and then pressed slightly.  I have no idea how I am going to use this, but it's one of my ideas and was kind of fun to just play around.

I can't wait to see how many nights I will lay awake while these ideas peculate in my head.  Stay tuned!
