I have a new binding technique to try, and am going to try a decorative stitch to machine finish it as well. But since my Rattlesnake quilt still looks pretty much like it did last time I showed it, and I am getting tired of a series of posts that all look almost identical, no more pictures until it is bound! Given how enthusiastic I generally am about binding, you may have completely forgotten its existence by the time I next post about it.
Instead of Rattlesnake pics, I want to show what I am thinking of for my next project, or projects. I was able to use some of the Stupendous Stitching techniques in my Rattlesnake quilt, but I want to use it more fully in a smaller piece. My office still has nothing personal in it at all, so I am planning to make a small wall hanging to put there. I’m considering these two beautiful fabrics for background.
I’m not sure I want to cover up the one on the right, so I’ll probably use the first one. It’s a bit brighter than it looks in the photo. I just need to get interfacing so I can start sewing.
The other project I am thinking about is something that can use showcase these gorgeous fabrics.
I bought them last summer and they have been calling to me from my closet. I need something that will show them off. I am inclined toward a simple, somewhat large block because small pieces may hide the larger-scale fabric designs. Any suggestions?
