Pieces woven together....
I liked that they created pot-like images but they also created fish-like images ..... hmm, which way to go?
Final direction could come later, for now on with the quilting. I used machine patterns for the edge stitching along the 'seams' and then free motion quilting for the squares. I'm enjoying the much needed practice I get with these challenges!
Now for the embellishments.... so many decisions, but I decided that I would add some clay pieces ... but which ones and where?
A fish? At the bottom or the top?
Pots with embellishments?
The pot direction won and I decided to put the buttons in the lower area where I felt the center of interest was. After sewing them in place I'm not sure I made the right decision. Perhaps I should leave it without embellishment....
But for now here is my finished "Woven Blues".....
Thanks Beverly for another fun challenge! To see the rest of the blue quilts head over to Tangled Textiles. More will be posted throughout the day and possibly into tomorrow.
As this is my first blog post of 2013 I want to wish everyone a happy New Year, hope you're having a wonderful year! I'll get caught up yet!
