quilted painted fabric

I bravely cut up one of my painted fabric pieces to use in a Ricky Timms Pattern. With a bit of rearranging of the strips so that the image was not in reverse, the image came out perfectly. To finish the piece I sandwiched batting between the top and backing, then stitched around each square of the painted fabric. My thought was to recess the painting from the other fabric strips. Today I am bordering it in black and binding it in black. I was thrilled to find the perfect backing material, a print with the mottled teal and black at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago.
This wallhanging will be on display in my vendors booth at the Nelson Quilt Show, Oct 1 & 2. The show is at the Prestige Inn in Nelson, B.C., Canada.
