Made for the Unfini-SHED fund raiser last summer, this quilt was an experiment creating a shape using layers of materials.
The background is a thrifted linen table runner and the binding a thrifted duvet cover. The only plain white surface in our temporary housing was the refrigerator, hence the magnets and somewhat bent corners.
Lots of stitching
and a little hand embellishing to make the shape pop.
Often you don't need many stitches to do so. When I go too far and need to pick up a few stitches, I know that it's finished.
I am quite pleased with the sheer heart and light threads that seem to float over the surface.
The heart is fragile – t(h)read lightly.
