The little clippings from all of last week's piecing had been swept off the table and into the waste basket when I thought...some of these could still be used, with my embellisher!
So many times when I visit other bloggers and see the spontaneous and quick projects they do I think to myself, "Allie, you should play more..." (I'm pretty project/goal oriented in my stitching.)
So yesterday I gave myself one day to create a little piece using some scraps, just for the fun of it.
It was interesting using the same fabrics in such an entirely different way.
This is 8" X 10".
The orange leaves are actually out of some filmy knitting ribbon that my friend Freda Butler sent to me. Thanks, Freda!
The ivy leaves and flowers are from an old batch of fake flowers I've had on hand for years. I felted them into place with a little soy roving (the fibers acting like a kind of glue.)
There's more I could do with this, but I want to get started on embellishing my Spring Crazy Quilt.
Thanks for the ideas that have come in regarding what to put in the center of the quilt. I love getting them!
Kathi Everett wrote suggesting I use dimensional silk flowers in an arrangement in the center, and I really like that idea...but I can start in on the seam treatments before I decide.
