I have been saving all the scraps from previous projects. They are just too pretty to throw away! It was a friend's birthday a couple of weeks ago and Aaron was sweet enough to watch Ethan, so I started working on a project for her. It ended up being a very LONG project. (It took two days to be exact.) I was inspired by this house and this one and decided to make the birthday girl her own version in the form of a quilted pillow. I started out by making a piece of fabric out off all of the scraps. This proved to be an addictive process. Don't try this at home.
The scraps I had on hand were Liberty, Amy Butler, Heather Ross, a few vintage textiles, Denyse Schmidt, and some Danish designs.
I had a pink and white striped vintage dress that I ripped apart for the shades. This is my favorite part.
Oh, and I also like the flower garden in front of the house and this little Liberty flower with mother of pearl button. So sweet.
I would love to do more fabric art like this. A whole quilt full of funky houses would be nice.
I have really been missing my mom the past couple of days, but am trying to count my blessings in the midst of grief. Quilting seems to help a bit, too.
Hope you all had a restful weekend.
