Finished the new AAQI quilt I've been working on, except for the label. I just began putting items from the odds and ends basket, embroidery scraps, eco dyed scraps, etc. onto a piece of linen that Debra sent me.
I won't make that mistake again. Other than that, I love using scraps and left overs, the experiments for the fun of it that have no purpose at the time, recycling what didn't work somewhere else, and I had fun with this quilt and all of the running stitches that work as both embroidery and quilting.
Several years ago, I discharged lots of fabric, experimenting with the process, then bundled up all of the smaller scraps. I made the little "brooch" in the bottom right-hand corner at that time and have kept it on my design board (which is really a place for things I like, but don't know what to do with at the time). Now that little discharged and embellished piece has a home.
Here is a quilt from 2005 using some of the discharged fabrics. I made a bunch of post cards from some of the discharged fabric, too.
I now have 3 little quilts ready to register for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Maybe one more?
You may have already seen this video, but it's mighty catchy!
If you like cats, you will love this video of Henri. A cat with a serious case of ennui. I think I'm in love with another cat. (via Ms Uncertainty Principles)
I have half a dozen projects in the works at the moment and at least a dozen more things I want to try!
Have a great week, y'all!
