I pulled out some pre-fused fabrics. Some were precut shapes, some were "scraps. " I keep all those scraps as they can be used "someday." This quilt proves it.
First I will show you the finish.
I placed some scraps around the bottom to make "beach" and water. I added an aqua "sun" in the sky. This is fantasy so you can be a little crazy with it.
It looked like this:
So I modified, got everything where I wanted it and fused it to the background and batting.
Then I did some hand stitching, starting with the focal point, the tree.
I finally added a layer of stiff stabilizer on the back and fused random leftover pieces to the back. I added a fused binding and then some decorative stitches to really secure it. Whew! Then I did a handmade hanger on the back, signed it, and it was done.
Today I am going to the doctor just to play it safe. This "crud" had been here longer than I feel comfortable with.
But honestly, I want to feel better so I can make some more of these fun decorative wall quilts.
