When I found myself with a couple hours to sew, and a poodle napping in the studio, I pulled out this project as it was on the top layer of the cutting table!
I finished the little pinwheel border after deciding to cut off the "stamp" edge of the motif. I had to add some filler strips to fit the border, again out of scrap bin.
Now the real work begins... choice making! Want to see what it's like, having too many choices?
what if I add this watery batik? With some pink rick rack?
what if I add this sparkly bright blue, and some rainbow rick rack?
Here it is without any rick rack, but with the sparkly blue and a little bit of water batik (sewn on)
what about a change of pace... this pinky sunrise with lots of birds...
or this bubble print with pink blue and purple?
I'm not even planning to sell or exhibit this! Why am I having so much trouble?
Making art should be easy. Get out of the way, and art makes itself.
Then there is this yellow with purple sunrise fabric. And then embellishments like the starfish Mickie sent me as a surprise one day!
