on the wall
The Noah quilt is from Janet Bolten's book Mrs. Noah's Patchwork Quilt. I have done some simple quilting and just need to decide on a binding.
I am not sure why I pieced those squares, perhaps I was going to make a journal cover? Anyway, an idea came to me when I pulled it out of a bin of scraps. Stay tuned.
On the bottom row:
I made the heart using little pieces you get when you trim half square triangles and ironing them down on some fusible interfacing. I had intended to mount it somehow but never got around to it. I really must figure out how to use this. Any ideas? The little chair is a piece I made in Janet Bolton's class at Sisters (4 or 5 years ago?). It is finished so I am not sure why it was in a bin of scraps. And the little bird is a Sue Spargo design. When I made it, I imagined it being one of many that would go into a larger quilt but now I am thinking it should be a wall hanging on its own.
Also uncovered in my work yesterday were some wonderful projects, on that I was beginning to think I gave away in another flurry of cleaning out the stash. I was able to get my fabric stash all sorts, purged, and reboxed by the end of the day and the room looks so inviting again.
Now, a trip to the donation shop is in order before I change my mind.
