My Stitch Along for June week 1

Posted by Ruth on 7 June 2015 | 0 Comments


I really enjoy starting a new stitch along and here we are at the beginning of a new one. Maybe you'll join in. If you missed the rules this week, they are really easy, just collect a few items to work with. Check back for the full details here: Week One Stitch Along rules for June

When I was thinking about the painter's palette, I had a certain fabric in mind. I just wasn't sure where it was so the hunt began. It was a piece of fabric that I used in this small art quilt when I was writing my class "Getting Started with Quilt Art" and I know I have more of the fabric notes floating - art quilt by Ruth Blanchet

While I was searching I found some fabrics that I thought I could use.... first were some bright scraps of solid fabrics that I feel could definitely be colors on a painter's palette.scraps of bright fabric including batiks, yellow, green, pink, blue & orange

Then I found this fabric that has a lot of wonderful bright colors - a pretty galaxy. I could definitely see this in my painter's palette.bright colored fabric - galaxy

I also found these bright fun fabrics. I might use them or I might not. We'll see where this goes.bright fun colored fabric

I did find some glitzy gold and silver fabrics, not cotton, but they look like fun to use, if I can find a way to incorporate and silver glitzy fabrics

I still didn't find the fabric I was looking for. Maybe I will this week before the rules for week 2 are out otherwise I'll just have to go with what I have, but not before adding in some threads and beads. Oh and I have some fabric paints I might make use of too.beads and threads in bright colors

So here we have it, my collection of fabrics and embellishments. I think I can make something fun with these. I've put them together in one image for the gallery. Let's see who else has joined us so far: June Gallery.
