In no particular order today to get you Inspired and into your quilting space!
February UFO finished
I finally just finished this top! It's been quilted for awhile, and I may still add some little embellishments (buttons and such), but for now I'm happy that I can look at it in my quilting space.
It was the top that inspired my Follow Your Bliss Makealong.
This photo inspired my blog post title today - Bliss and Joy. I like how they look (and feel) together :)
Joy is still a work in progress. . .
This photo does not do the quilt justice. The blue 'quilting lines' are actually signatures on the quilt and the quilting lines are around them.
This is quite a beautiful, detailed piece of mixed fibres and dimensional pieces that bring the viewer in closer to see how they were affixed to the quilt top.
I saw this quilt up close and personal during the March Break. The binding is made up of several of the fabrics that are in the quilt.
THIS weekend I got inspired and added a little bit to my stash at a local stash sale!
The first time for this event and the place was packed (for a little town and even a moderate sized one!)
All those zippers were $3! I'm hoping some, if not all of the rainbow of fabrics are cotton. They're in the washer right now:)
This bag full of buttons filled a small mason jar. Lots of happiness in here:)
This was one event leading up to my little towns fiber arts festival in october.
Espanola Fiber Arts Festival.
This was THE find that got me started spending! I love the pattern and the colours.
It's not cotton. It feels like burlap almost. My first thought was to make a carpet bag with it. We'll see what I come up with!
AND. because I still have LOTS of snow and have wanted to dye fabric for years, check out this tempting tutorial on snow dyeing!
Check out her beautiful results here - snow dyed fabrics!
Take some time to enjoy quilting this week!
