Drowning in Debt

Drowning in Debt is a quilt I made for an online art quilt group.The Fast Friday challenge theme was Under the Sea. My quilt reflects our economic times. The text, Debt, was cut with the Cursive 101 cartridge.
I designed a life preserver by scanning in a coloring page and I cut fabric with with the Cricut. The white and orange fabrics had Heat n Bond Ultrahold fused to the back and were cut without the paper with the fusible side down on the mat. After I finished, a friend told me that Life's a Beach already a the life preserver image! Oh well...I learnt how to do it myself and am so pleased with Make The Cut and Inkscape software.
