Fabric Tuesday

This is the latest thing to emerge from the pile of scraps I have been playing with this week.  It's just a very tiny thing curve-pieced from strings of Klona. I have started keeping everything and these strings are probably 1.5 cm wide at the most. I quilted it with variegated thread and added some beads.

Waves

Or pond weed?!

It's been a distraction from making my mind up about quilting Emerald - sometimes you have to do that!  I like these Klona cottons more and more - they have a lovely sheen and the colours are very intense.


PS, Welcome Marjorie, my 100th reader!  I think most gave up long ago, and inevitably someone will get fed up of my wittering (or maybe bored of my latest obsession with blue/green scrappy piecing) and unsubscribe, but I am very grateful!

  1. I like this a lot–it reminds me of a cross section of agate, especially with the sparkly bits.

  3. Just gorgeous - it does make me think of pond weed, with the beads representing the little trails of bubbles you see.
