Orange and Brown
I was not sure this would ever feel done. I THINK it may be now... This started out as one postcard and five ATCs. I liked them too much to give away. I decided to see what they would look like all together on an art quilt. So I played with them, and my embellishing machine/felting wool roving, and Angelina fibers, and ribbons, etc... around them. I added metal embellishments I got from Judy at Red Velvet; Still it was NOT done. I added the burlap backing. Not yet. I added the thick orange border. Almost. I sewed on the huge bone buttons I got at a quilt show last year. I top sewed the squares and lines on the brown background, Nearly there, I added orange and green threads to the orange borders. Whew, I think it's done. I almost threw it out. What do you think?
