Green, green grass of home...

art quilting

I seem to have a lot of green in this bag. There were a few long strips so I started piecing and cutting and have ended up with this.

At this point I have not decided whether to add lots of straight line stitching and do something like this or this, or whether to try and use up those scraps a bit quicker by throwing a load of applique at it :)

There were lots of smaller bits left over and so I have pulled out the embellisher again and added them to a scrap of wadding.

This will be kept, cut up and added to some future pieces.
Both remind me of a patchwork of fields, hence the title, which might give me some direction in what I do next.
Stay tuned!

Looking at these photos I see the difference in the greens. The first were taken in rare sunshine.
The last in the ever present rain!

  1. Your scrap bag must be like Hermione's hand bag ;-)) do you use a special batting when you run scraps through your embellisher or "just scraps of batting" no matter what quality?

    Almost like watching the fields go by when your on a plane

  3. I love stitching my scraps together to make small quilts, but mine are usually prim style, maybe I need to think about more art styles for my brighter shades.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
