What do you do with the pieces of fabric that have been rejected from a quilt?
I have been designing a very special quilt for a very special purpose and a lot of the fabrics that I have dyed and embellished have "hit the cutting room floor" so to speak. The pile was starting to get a little large and some of the fabrics I really love.
I couldn't help myself (again!). I made another wall hanging to trial some of the ideas I have for the "very special quilt"!
Unfortunately the rusted fabrics just didn't make the grade but when they are all put together without any distracting colours they seem to develop a live of their own.
This little quilt is still a WIP. I'm only half way through quilting it then I need to add more paint and a few other embellishments (beads maybe?!). My sewing has been slowed up a bit. On Friday night I picked a fight with our very large, just sharpened, Chef's knife! Six stitches later in the heal of my left hand, I am feeling a bit sore and very silly! Now we have two invalids in the house! What a pair!
