The background fabric in this quilt was dyed in the microwave.  It was then dyed again in a different color, and some areas were overdyed and fused to the background.  There are overlays of photos and old handwritten recipes on muslin and organza.  Judy used a number of different painting tehcniques, including sponging with metallic Jacquard paint. It is quite beautiful to behold.
