Finding Fabric For A Finish.

Posted on | February 19, 2019 | 18 Comments

Quite an alliterative title. But not intended that way.

I had completed the three panels for my wall hanging and had auditioned fabrics for the border. Both were tone on tone – one green, one blue. Both were lovely and I was having a hard time deciding. So I took my project to my sewing session ready to finally choose and stitch away. Before I had even unpacked I saw a new fabric range and one fabric jumped out at me. It was a Liberty type print in greens and blues in just the right shade. So of course I bought it and used it then and there. Here is the result.

The fabric matched the idea I had in my head some time ago but of course I couldn’t find any when I first looked. I am so pleased it turned up when it did. Here are the completed blocks.

Bird.

Caravan.

Heart.

I had the right sized piece of fabric for the backing – Aussie place names. I had used this as a backing on my cat quilt last year.

Now I need to find the right hooks for hanging.

These are all from Patterns by Wendy Williams called Travel Threads. I hope to make more of these designs as they are delightful.

For a change of pace we went to see the Escher Exhibit in Melbourne today. My head is still spinning with the amazing designs he made. And it was lovely to enjoy the city on a cool day.

Enjoy your week. Cheers, Karen

P.S. Marina, my replies to you are bouncing back again. Send me an email directly and I will see if that works properly.
