Good afternoon

Gaa-Barge #2

IMG_0461I first make fabric with tiny bits of scrap fabric.  After laying the scraps on a base,  I overlaid it with tulle.  I auditioned several colors of tulle until I found the right one.  Then I free motioned black leaves over the made fabric.  I cut the new fabric into circles and cut the circles in quarters.  Laying the quarter circles on a square of blue, I stitched it down.  After sewing the squares in a sixteen patch, I sewed around the made fabric with a close, black zig zag.  The whole piece was then stippled quilted with silver thread.  It looks like a church window.  It’s amazing what can be done with very tiny scraps that should be thrown away.

Happy quilting
