For the past week I have been suffering with a cold/sinus ailment. Today, Saturday, I woke up feeling like I actually wanted to do something besides hibernate. So, I have something to crow about. I downloaded a design from Laura Wasilowski at Artfabrik and made this little art quilt.
I confess that I strayed away from her directions, but then this is MY quilt and I can do that. **Today's hint- give yourself permission to take a creative detour. ** I used some Floriani stabilizer called Stitch 'n' Shape to make it firm so it will hang straight easily. It is a fused design, but then I free motion machine stitched on it to add some extra texture. I forgot to put a layer of batting under the top fabric so that I could hand stitch some embellishments on it. The Stitch and Shape is easily machine stitched, but is a little too tough to hand stitch through (at least for me!)
Here is my creation that I am calling "Something to Crow About."
