The above photo is Faded Blue before it faded.  In a late night rush to wash the piece because of a stain, I forgot that cyanoprint must not be washed with SOAP or the color fades.  The result was an accident.

My first thought was to cut it up and throw it away.  Cooler heads prevailed.  (Thank you, family!) I remedied the accident with quilt drawing each of the figures, giving them distinct faces and expressions.  Some accidents result in good art.
