We just got back from a fabric sale and a separate quilt show... but first a little "show" of my own. I've gotten frustrated with the triangles again, so I started a few little strips of adding machine tape. I take a bit off the floor, or out of the scrap bags, and if it will fit I sew it to a piece of adding machine tape. I don't know what I'll make out of it yet, but here's a picture.
See what I mean?
Real cheery, don't you think so?
This is a sweety. The flowers are paper pieced, I think, and the leaves and center bouquet are drawn onto the fabric with crayon!!!! I know. I've heard of it before. I think there was an article in one of my magazines, umpteen years ago. It creates a lovely pastel coloration. (Probably doesn't stay on through many washes, but you could always refresh the color again with the crayon.) I don't think I'll try it, but you never know. I try never to say never... such a sad word.
So that was my morning, today. It's always a good day seeing a quilt show and buying fabric! Hope your day was just as fun, and have a beautiful rest of the weekend!
