I am piecing a quilt top.

It is a scrappy quilt top, using these wishy-washy aqua colours that seem to have been multiplying in my stash.

There is no contrast in these fabrics, but that is okay because I have a plan.

Decisions regarding a Bird House.

art quilt kit

I have been putting together some simplified versions of the Bird House for kits.
When putting together something like this, there are lots of little decisions that need to be made. Decisions that dictate how a project turns out.
It is very important to get these things right! :)

Like a light or dark background. I like the darker version but decided that there wasn't enough value contrast to make the elements stand out.

Do I hand stitch the background as in the original or machine stitch for speed?

Do I machine stitch around the blossoms?

Or just hand embellish?
Decisions, decisions!
You can see what I have decided? What would you have done?

hand dyed fabric

Following on from my last post, you can see that it has just been more of the same.

I did have some stitching images to share, but before I got around to downloading them to the computer from my phone, said phone underwent a major change.

It went under the wheel of our car!!!
Learn from my mistake. Do not leave your phone on your lap while travelling! Put it back in your bag! Or like me you will forget that it is there, and when you get out to open the gates to your drive it will fall to the floor and your husband will drive straight over it!

...and all the photos you took for planned blog posts will be lost :(
