Well, haven't had a chance to post my metal pieces yet as I am still working on some, but in the mean time, to show you that I am still busy creating, I have posted some new eye candy. In the past 10 days, I have finished machine quilting almost 4 quilts and worked on some letters. I hadn't decided if the letters would become part of a chunky book or a banner, but I am leaning on towards the later. These were so much fun to do!
Give me a "C"
Give me an "R"
Give me an "E"
Give me an "A"
Give me a "T"
Give me an "E"
What does that spell?
Since these are 4 X 4's, I was thinking that they would make a great chunky book, but, remember that shelf that hubby just put up? I am thinking of using it as a banner to run across the top. Instead of making a swag, I may do it differently since the charms on each of the blocks are different so they will hang funny if they do, so may either use 2 way sticky tape to hang from the edge or what if I suspend each from chains or rope attached to it's own shelf scarf? Any other ideas? What would you do?
I did a bit of recycling with some charms that I made. I wished that I would have taken a photo of it before, but will describe it to you. I had these ugly earrings that were made of a checkered fabric. There were 3 round pieces. two with that fabric and one shiny black one. The black one took on a life of its own and is actually hanging from the "C". The fabric ones, I repainted and added lobster claws for a trade. Now I love them! I used one in the first "E". Seemed fitting as it reminds me of hypnosis!
I also finished machine quilting these quilts. I love the colors on this one! I am partial to hand dyes and batik fabrics. I did an all over freehand design on this one.
This is the back of the quilt
I love the colors in this one, so nice and soft looking. I used an all over panto pattern called feather me. It's one of my favorites!
This is a 4 patch done stack and whack style. It didn't photograph well on the clothes line because of the trees and time of day.
I had hubby hold it up from the deck. This is the back. I love seeing the backs more than the fronts!
Well, I have one more quilt on the machine about 3/4's finished, so I had best get back at it as I promised it for tomorrow, so back to creating art and stitches!
