Annie, one of my Material Girls friends, had a birthday recently. She had requested spots, stripes and checks ... this is what I came up with. The stitchery is by Annie Bird and can be found in her book, From the Heart. I used scraps from my hexie fabrics for the border. This was a hard one to part with ... it looked very nice in my sewing room.
I used a cheery red spot for the back.
Lots of sewing happened this weekend. Unfortunately I can't show any of it yet but as Christmas seems to be approaching rapidly it won't be too long until all can be revealed. Oliver was oh so helpful (NOT!) when I was trying to cut fabric.
I have discovered another use for binding clips. They are really good for keeping fabric pieces for a block together until you are ready to sew them.
Anyway, have a good week. Hope you find time to be creative.
