I decided to do a sample of my favorite kinds of fabrics.
First is this fabric by Jane A. Sassaman. I simply beaded it and backed it with felt.
Such cheerful spring colors ~ it was hard to put down.
This was crazy quilted and embellished with beads, silk ribbon and trims.
They remind me off 1940's Mom's with crisp aprons and Pledge in one hand and a fresh bakes pie in the other!
This was also crazy quilted and embellished with beads, thread and trim.
I cut tiny pieces of my favorite cottage /shabby fabrics and made a little patchwork quilt.
I did some fancy stitches on my embroidery machine and finished it off with some old buttons.
My layer sandwhich consisted off the top piece, muslin, shirt taylor interfacing, wonderunder and felt as a baking. The shirt taylors was ironed to the muslin and the wonderunder ironed to the felt .
I also used fray check on all edges before I started sewing as some of the other participants did.
I hope to have these off to Pat by the end of the week!
