Week One Gallery Images

Barbara sent her photo of fabric and threads. She is thinking "circles combining the two paisley designs from the fabric".

Amanda also sent in a photo. She says... "after I had cut my blah, uninspiring fabric into circles, I liked it much better!" and she also discovered that by photographing possible position variations for the circles she can compare them and select the one she likes best - much easier than trying to remember all the possibilities. Great discovery!

I selected a soft blue and gold fabric - a little pale for my liking. You can read about my other choices on my recent blog post.

Here is my Stitch along. I haven't attached the shapes yet as I haven't decided exactly which way to attach them. Read more on my week two post.

Amanda sent along her photo. The circles are looking great. It is amazing what one can designs using a simple shape!

Amanda was going to add the straw beads, but they were too big for her project. "Couching was more successful even though I had
to make do with embroidery cotton - some interestingcords are definitely on my "to get" list. I did the binding with blanket stitch and couched embroidery cotton - it doesn't show up all that well in the photo, but I liked the effect"says Amanda.

I added quilting to my piece but still need to decide what binding I should use - gold or blue. Check my recent blog post out for more details.
