I've collected quite a few fabrics over the years from dressmaking, curtain making and many other textile-making projects.
Some fabrics are fairly new.
Some are older.
This piece has scraps from several skirts, my living room curtains, a friend's blouse and many bits I always thought were too small to use (but too pretty to throw away).
The paper piecing from http://www.15minutesplay.com/2011/04/sunday-10th-april-12-x-12-mini-quilt.html turned itself into a leaf. But then what? No ideas.
After a long search through the scrap pile a little Liberty carnation turned up and made the top left corner. Three other flowers came to keep it company and the top was sewn together. But the little carnation was too pale in comparison and had to be replaced. I thought I could take it out and fill in with the new flower, but no - the entire top left corner had to be taken out and redone.
After careful measuring throughout, I was more than a little surprised to find the top had been trimmed to 11 x 12. Oops.
It's ready for quilting now. I was thinking - round the edge, the leaf and the flowers. Any other suggestions will be gratefully received. I haven't done much quilting - I would normally frame a piece like this.
I so enjoyed making it and I hope Mystery Lady likes it.
