Faded Florals

September 24, 2016

After a week of making earrings, I've packed all my beads away and decided to have a go at using an antique and sadly past its best quilt. It's heavily moth-eaten, but I really like the effect, especially on the border where the background ink was apparently tastier than the floral design. A lot of the remaining fabric was loose from the backing, so I've machine embroidered over the loose pieces in a colourmatched thread, which is really fun :) So far, I'm thinking stuffed heart decorations and hair flowers, but there's an awful lot of quilt so I'm open to suggestions and ideas!
