I’m working on a 12” square Gelli print block. So far, I’ve free motion stitched it and started to cut out some fused bits to layer on top. In this version I laid thin strips along part of a joined edge as my Gelli prints are not 12” wide.
I have never been able to insert videos with this APP that I write my blog with. I’ve tried adding a link below for a little video that I just did. It was easy to post on ainstagram and fb. It’s complicated here.
In this one you can see the joined edge.
Once I get all the bits cut, ironed on and stitched, I’ll add the batting and quilt it. I enjoy these ad lib pieces.
On my design wall, there is a baby quilt in progress. My husband’s niece is expecting s little girl in July.i will take this to UFO day Saturday where I should get most of it done. I need 3 more blocks. Also, I want to change the 2 darker berry coloured squares as I find them a little dark.
As a fiber artist, I don’t generally do patterns from other artists. One artist that I’ve followed for years is Leslie from MarvelesArtStudios.com, and recently she has been creating some really sweet collages patterns. She also does workshops. I couldn’t resist this one with the gnome. Isn’t it cute?
I’ll be gathering some of the fabrics when I travel, especially the fake fur. In the meantime, I’ve raided my stash and started cutting some flowers.
It’s kind of relaxing to put something on to watch and do the cutting.
