Growing a new project

I am in dire need of some relaxing hand sewing while snuggling in the sofa in the evenings. As hand sewing bindings apparently won’t be necessary in the nearest future, I’ll start working on this Let It Go, Let It Grow piece which colours make my mouth water.
I prepared it for our guild's second annual QUIP (Quilting in Public day) in June. The circle is the cut-out from Urban Christmas and the background a piece of a hand woven linen table cloth. I love the different textures of the batiks and linen together.

The linen is quite loosely woven, so I fused a stabiliser to the back and stitched around the edges of the circle a few times. Better safe than sorry, right?

  1. Hi Nina Lise,
    I agree, the differing textures look terrific.
