After the power sewing session last week, I have not even touched my sewing machine since I got home. It felt good to get a start on the bowtie quilt.
I really like how this is turning out. All the bowties are vintage feedsack fabrics and the backgrounds are modern up to date fabrics.
I loved the ballerinas on this fabric and didn't have enough to make one of the squares. I resorted to the old fashion way of piecing it to make it work.
This one feels very contemporary to me, I could see this in a current collection.
How fun is this?
Even I who struggle with contrast realized a lot of these were low contrast. I went ahead and used them any way. I like how some of them fade in and out, like old quilts. It makes you have to really look at the fabrics.
One of the things I bought at the quilt show were these bundles of hand dyed wool. I have a definite project in mind for these little pretties.
I really like how they are gradated. Isn't this a pretty blue?
This is where I got them. Jackie is a fun person with lots of beautiful wool. Call or email her if you have something in mind.
We had some campers in our woods this weekend.
