Hello, hello, hello! I could have continued those little trees for ever … but had to put end some where …
In the Fabric Forest sun is shining always! Sunlight through the trees were strong and made so deep shadows that I had to close the shutter to take photos. Hanna is on her way to the balcony where she likes to lie when I’m sewing.
One of my favourite moments is when I can cut the edges and the quilt starts to have a clear look. Binding was easy pick as I knew much earlier which one it will be. But now I think should I have chosen solid? Ah, you know, there is always too many possibilities.
Quilting wasn’t so easy choise. This project was late because I didn’t have idea for the quilting. Then I decided to stitch spider web. After few lines I got the idea and had to rip those lines (perhaps for the first time ever I ripped quilting).
For the bed quilts I like to sew the binding by machine because it’s stronger. After realizing that hand sewing is much quicker than I thought, I like to hand sew the binding for the wall quilts.
Wonder clips remind me always of my dear friend who sent them to surprise me!
‘Fabric Forest’ is part of the Quilty 365 project. I started 1st of January 2016 and I made 60 little trees for January and February. To make the quilt square I add 4 empty blocks. In March I didn’t make blocks but sew this quilt to finish it and started new theme.
I have so many ideas in my notebook for the Quilty 365! For the one I wanted to start, I didn’t find background fabric from my stash and didn’t want to by now. When looking for that fabric I got new idea …
What you think? Looks quite fun!
I cut pairs from hard paper: with the bigger I cut the fabric and with the smaller I baste.
And the fabric is from Ikea …
I shall link with Audrey at ‘Quilty Folk’ for the ‘Quilty 365’.
Also I shall join my favourite weekly linky parties:
‘Fabric Forest’ = ‘Kangasmetsa’ (in Finnish), is now drying outside and I’m happy to say that the trees didn’t disappear in the washing! This forest will get better and better after each wash!
I shall go now to stitch my 6th circle. Thank you very much for reading my short stories and for writing so wonderful and supporting comments! You make my day!
