I could not resist this smile today when my young cousin sent me this photo among many of her 2 adorable children.
I also am thinking of entering a Go Green challenge in Quilting Arts magazine. The challenge is to use recycled materials in a 5" x 5" square.
So here I have used the backing from Rose quilt for the background, the leopard from FY quilt, cut outs from cereal boxes (body), left over paper/cloth from previous projects. And the inner layer is from a discarded paper towel roll. Backing is old fabrics too. Then I laid it out and top stitched using free motion stitching.
The bottom picture is a thank you card to my friend Janet for having us to dinner this past Friday night. I used of course left over fabric from Clematis quilt. And top stitched, then painted with acrylics around the flower and for the words. It's still wet. Will cut excess fabric away when it's dry. Sewing machine got touchy and was gathering up threads again on the back so I glued a piece of black fabric to the back to cover that mess.
Not great master pieces here but I did have fun, and that is what counts, right? Right!
