Throw Back Thursday 07/28/16
For today's TBT post I chose a wall hanging that I designed for a shop challenge back in 2008. You can see the original post here. We were given two fat quarters - the purple and the green floral print - to use in a quilted piece. There were a lot of rules on size and fabric, etc., but I think I was the only one who followed them. In the end the challenge was not a good experience for me, but I'm really happy with the piece that I made. I really pushed myself to create a design I liked within the parameters given. The flowers are folded fabric which I then hand appliqued onto the pieced backing. The vines were made with a 1/4" bias tape maker. That was a challenge in itself! It later hung in an exhibit at a local library.
It's fun revisiting these projects from the past!
