My friend and fellow Artistic Alchemy Teacher teaches this quilt of her own design. I took the class, and of course with with the leftover fabrics thought, “How can I use these pieces in a garment.” Visit Christine’s website for yummy patterns and kits, and fabrics: christinebarnes.com
First, I have to make gorgeous blocks from my scraps.
There it is again. And oh dear, in this close up some of my hand stitching shows. Anybody looks at it that closely when I have it on will be smacked! And there is the machine stitching line AGAIN! That line is my big tip for the day: Stitch some lines, two are plenty unless you think you need more. They take the place of pins. I hate shots, needles, and pin pricks. This was so easy and clever on my part, I am even now patting myself on the back. Let’s look one more time:
Two lines are plenty for this 5″ rectangle. I will just pick out the red violet stitching lines and then give it a good press. Please check back to see my progress and the name I will give this vest. I am off to the county fair! I have gone to this fair, here in Nevada County, CA since I was a very little girl. I’ll take a few shots to show you all that it is the prettiest fair in the whole state! Have a great, creative week. Hugs, Heidi
