I’ll be selling at the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market Craft Market on Saturday, October 15, 2016, and I have some new Rewind Designs to show off–
1) First is my state applique pillow on linen/cotton with a canvas back.
A great use for old quilt pieces in my collection, this applique also resonates our state’s rural and textile past.
If you like to draw, sketch your state and make a pattern. Or you can do what I did and buy graphics on Etsy.
2) Next, I took that theme (and pattern) into my reclaimed embroidery collection.
These flowers were appliqued onto canvas, then the state shape was cut out and quilted onto off-white burlap. Next, I hand stitched the word “love” in gold metallic thread (since yes, I do love NC).
As you can see, the pillow is unfinished. Lots of sewing to do before Saturday morning–
3) And since one thing usually leads to another in my sewing room, here’s a similar floral collage called “Nest”.
Not sure if I can bear to part with this one (or if I’ll finish it on time), but I will have plenty of my vintage fabric creations (like the tool apron below) at the craft market Saturday. Hope to see you there.
