It's amazing what you will find when you clean up!
I don't do this much so things go missing all the time.
I was desperate enough to clean this time.
SO anyway, I found the sketch my daughter drew, for the "Balloon Field" below, under my ironing mat
and was inspired to make it (Yay! she's back!)
its made on 2/3 of a fat quarter of black background
with double sided steam-a-seam and lots of scraps.
Many, so many scraps.
After 2 years of trying to get rid of them all I still haven't managed to make more than a dent.
I then proceeded to have so much fun,
I decided to do it again,
only easier this time,
so I could maybe teach this technique to others.
the daisy balloon took about 2 hours for me to do
|What iz u doing?|
I have to keep in mind,
so as I made this,
I explained to the cat what I was doing.
I don't think she understood.
now for the hard part sewing around all the raw edges
so they don't wander off when the quilt is handled
And just to make it take longer and be more tedious
I'm doing it for all three quilts I've made so far
the two above and the Hawaii 6 panel quilt,
al least the snow has stopped
and it's started to rain again.
