I have made a few additions and done some hand stitching and this is where I am with my fused quilt.
I am very happy with how the quilt looks now. It was at this stage when last I blogged. I really felt that the center was too open.
Here are a few of the hand stitching details. I really do love the hand stitching and bead work, surprise, surprise!!
I forgot to show you the marvelous ahnd dyed perle cotton and silk threads that I bought from Laura Wasilowski. They are simply glorious ! It was very hard to resist purchasing the whole basket full!!!!
On another dyeing note, I stopped by an Estate sale yesterday and picked up too decorative iron trivets. Now I do not use trivets for fancy dinners and all of my plants are living outside for the summer, I look for these little gems to use in rust dyeing!!! I came home , mixed up some vinegar and water, found my lunch trays and plastic sheeting, cut some fabric and put the whole deal out in the sun. Two hours later look at what I had!!! Circles, circles, Circles!!!! Such potential in these little pieces of rusted loveliness. I am quite pleased with the rust on the blue fabric!!
Happy Creating everyone!!
