For those of you that thought weaving was going to replace quilting for me - Take Heart! I have started another quilting project. This was inspired in part by Pat Merkle's Layers on Layers quilt. And partly by a dream/thought in a half awake state.
I pieced the background and the "flames/tentacles" using a curved piecing technique that is on my YouTube channel called "Wavy Bars Block"
The circles I cut out using a plate, a saucer and a small bowl. The larger two I tried to do a turned edge machine applique. Ha that needs some work! My circles have a few pointy edges. But not to worry, I may embellish over those anyway. That is a "let's wait and see" proposition. This will be an artsy wallhanging. I am currently planning some heavy quilting on it. Time will tell.
I also bought some upholstery fabric to use to make a bag for my loom. There is one you can purchase premade for only $65 plus shipping. (I don't think so!) For $5, I got 2 1/4 yards of the upholstery material. I am sure I can make a suitable bag.
Do you look at items and say "I can make my own for a LOT less" when you are shopping? I do it with manufactured goods all the time. However, when it is handmade, I say "maybe I should support the artist."
