I'm working on making something from the scraps and linen I gave you a glimpse of last week, in this post. My progress so far? Scrappy pieces have been made into a bit of patchwork that I've now heavily quilted for texture.
For the linen, I've used five different coloured quilting threads combined with a variety of quilted line designs.
I even added some hand stitching in colourful embroidery threads
and some shiny shell buttons. All this means that I am getting closer to finishing, but I still have a few steps left before I have a completed project to share with you. The more time I spend on this, the more in love I am with linen. Could there be any fabric more appealing for combining with patchwork and embelllishments? Part of me wants to hoard the linen I have, but then the temptation for creating with it is so strong. Am I the only one this crazy about linen? lol
