I am doing the Whoopee Dance (I don't think that will translate very well for those that have to use translation)! Mary from Quilt Hollow sent me an early birthday present. Look at what she sent.
I finished stitching the twelve wool flower blocks and set them together.
I don't know why I can't take a straight picture. The blocks were designed by Lisa Bonjean of Primitive Gatherings. She showed the blocks over the summer on her blog. I did a quick look and do not find the patterns on the shop website though they may be there and I did not see them. Lisa used a pieced border of small squares. I decided to use a plainer border as the blocks were busy looking. I tried several fabrics before deciding to settle on plainer fabrics. The dark brown inner border is a wood grain look fabric. The tan is a crackle print. All the fabrics I used including the wool came from stash. I will do minimal quilting on this piece.
Stash brings up a thought. How long does a piece of fabric have to be in your possession before it is considered stash? I think it is when the fabric is already on the shelf and not planned for any particular project. Or a leftover from another project.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
