Last weekend I felt the need to let quilting be my creative outlet.
I've been collecting Fossil Fern Fabrics and have had a desire to play with bias tape for months. So I did.
I took one of my longarm curved rulers and drew opposing curves on a Pastel Almond Fossil Fern fat quarter. I didn't center the curve; I just plopped it on. When I drew the opposing curve, I only measured so that the tops and bottoms of the curves matched the first curve.
I cut bias strips from Fossil Fern Wisteria, pieced them together, and made 1/2" bias tape. Then I appliqued it to the curve using InvisiFil thread, applique pins, and a straw needle.
I really enjoyed this small bit of hand stitching while I sat and visited with family this weekend.
I pulled out a bunch of other threads because I have ideas of where this is going next:
This is either going to be the best quilt ever or a total mess. I'm ok either way and look forward to more small moments of play in the near future.
