I started this last year for my Sister-in-Law as a hostess gift for inviting us to Thanksgiving... It didn't get done. I made the 5 paper pieced Mimbulus Mimbletonias, but after that I was stumped as to what to do with them. What colors to use, what quilting to add, and quite afraid my skills wouldn't make a good enough product. I gathered up the blocks and fabrics and set it all aside. Tuesday I decided to finish it after remembering something my drawing teacher taught us... photographic renderings were for cameras. Art work is made by humans and while not perfect, brings more insight to the piece.
Here's the piece, a table runner.
These close-ups show the real colors. (The pattern comes from Fandom in Stitches the Harry Potter section. I've made many of them. It's a great houseplant - no watering, no sunshine required.)
The binding is red roses, and brings out the MM flowers. Hope she likes it.
So this is to wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a Happy Holiday of your choice.
I tried to get artsy with the body (in private, of course, LOL). The body fabric is the sky with planets. I wanted the top and bottom to be different... they are. Oh well, that just makes something interesting (or interstellar) to find.
The wings are blue with red lines woven in...makes it look more purple.
