{Florist} mini quilt

One of my favourite projects! So much fun to make raw edge applique flowers on the low volume quilt!

Nero's post III

Hello dear friends! This mini quilt started totally extempore and was one of the most enjoyable projects I have done!

The base is made with low volumes and you can see that HERE.

Now the quilt is washed and I love all those wrinkles!

On the low volume quilt I was supposed to create something applique. Those ideas changed few times and I ended up making these fun shape flowers. I was also happy to have a chance to use some of the bias strips I have from my mom’s stash. They are for poppana weaving and they are thinner and softer than the similar strips for rug weaving.

{Dreaming at Dusk} and photos

Nero's post III

Hi dear friends! Dreaming at dusk sounds really nice! My dictionary says that dusk is dark, twilight, grey dawn … I feel that dusk is foggy, twiglight yes, misty … soft pastel colours and greys come to my mind.

I was looking if I can find ‘dusk’ from my photos which usually have lots of colours.

Marathi

Afternoon in Crete has usually most beautiful soft colours! That time is very short time after the sunset and before the dark.

But let me tell you where this came from.  Rachel at ‘Stitched in Color’ has again Mosaic Contest going on – last moment in fact to join! Theme is {Dreaming at Dust} and she has created once again the most beautiful photo collection to inspire us! There are 2 quilts which I want to make both! And the colours in her post are so so delicious! Sponsor is fantastic ‘Lark Cottons’!…

She has a big smile! It’s fun to make hexagon flowers and to plan what fabrics to use.

scrap mouse

This mouse is my favourite because of her cute, pink ears!

winding ways

‘Winding ways’ is forgotten in a box … waiting to be continued one day.

quilt block

Once turning around the pieces, I liked this option. Perhaps I will make sometimes something with this kind of blocks.

pink rose

Pink may be my favourite colour of rose!

My first project was to try stamping on fabric. I took my letter stamps in wooden box, colours and also few other fun stamps.
