For this month's Table Scraps challenge to use our scraps to make something with flowers on it, I made a small table topper 12" x 12" using scraps from making a bed quilt of flowering snowball blocks.
Yep I keep it all... all scraps! I layered them on stabilizer, then couldn't pick a background, so I made one with green scraps.
I just layed them on the peltex batting, overlapping, and started quilting
Cotton threads in a wide variety of colors, gold metallic around the center dots.
no binding, just a double layer of zig zag stitch
I actually wanted to make all these, and will... the small one at the bottom will become a journal cover, the one at the left will be a spring banner, from a painting I did of a simple yellow flower.
I improv pieced sections to cut into petals and plan to use this hand dyed fabric background and keep it simple with pretty stitching
while I like the petals I might put this sheer over them
I decided to do these blocks for the RSC this year along with random projects.
from AQS newsletter, in 1930's print scraps from a bed quilt made years ago
did you know about this , the quiltfolk people are doing a project from book covers
and they do a studio tour too...
finished "glamingo" this week and the post is here
