July Challenge and linking up with Project Quilting by Persimon Dreams:
9" x 19"
I have three coordinating fabrics of this Magnolia fabric that I love and never wanted to cut it up. I just posted to another blogger today that when you hold onto those fabrics we love, the spell it has over us can be broken when you decide to cut into them and what you make from them you might fall in love with too.
This is so true for this project.
I love how this turned out.
Raw edge applique, thread painting, tiny bit of piecing, machine quilted organic lines = LOVE!
Size is odd but was chosen because that was the size of batting I had nearest my sewing machine.
and 2. the ability to make decisions and live your life free from the control or influence of other people
my project for this months challenge clearly falls in-line. I freely made a decision to do whatever I wanted for this project, cut into some long hoarded fabric, tried a few of the techniques I have been wanting to do more of and fell in 'love' with the finished piece. I would say I asserted my 'independence' on this one. :)
