This is a challenge wall hanging I made for the quilting expo to be held here next weekend. You bought a fabric packet and then made whatever you liked from it. The colors are not my thing but.............It didn't turn out too bad. I don't expect to win a thing, but it was challenging for me just to step outside my comfort zone and create something that hundreds of people are going to view and comment (good & bad) on. It had to have the word memory or memories somewhere on the quilt. I think the idea behind this particular fabric being chosen along with the word memories was something to do with the 60's????
Let me know what you think of my very "colorful" flower garden!!!

Yesterday and today I played around with threads~n~Fiber sandwiches. Well that's what I call them anyhow. I took a piece of lightweight fabric for the bottom or backing,laid it on solvy dissolve stabilizer, then cut snips of different fibers, yarns and threads and layered them on. Sprayed it all with quilting spray adhesive put a layer of fine tulle over it, free motion embroidered on top then put it in hot water to shrink it. Not sure what I'll use these for, possibly covers on altered books or more drawing journals.
