|I have a couple projects in this year and I am dancing on the rooftops about it, because my work hasn't been in this particular magazine in a long time. Here is the link
|and it's all about these flowers! Cut out on a Sizzix die cutting machine - The Big Shot for the Fabi. I have a vast collection of flower dies. I used Weeks Dye Works Wool and they came out beautifully. Hand sewn with #8 perle cotton thread
|Here's a nice stack of Weeks Dye Works Wool in solids and heringbone
|This is the start of the small scarf that is featured in this issue as well. I used Sizzix die cuts in hexagons and hand sewed them to another layer of wool by hand. You'll have to take a look at the issue to see how the flowers were incorporated
|I got a little obsessed with making these flowers. I think they add alot to these felt stitchings. This is a class that I teach called "Zen Stitching." I am teaching it at the Quilt Alliance event in NYC in September for Quilters Take Manhattan. This will be a very fun and relaxing 3-hour class! I will have kits available to purchase. Here is the link
|I am using #8 Perle cotton thread to hand sew
|A variety of fabrics will be in the kit besides wool blended felt - some pre-fused sheers, commercial cottons and felt hexagons for some added fun!
|These have been so relaxing to create. I hope you will join me in NYC when I teach this class at City Quilter on Friday, September 25th
