Cutting a failure up

Recently I came across a piece of fabric that I had mono printed in 2010, it had some serious technical problems and had been put aside. I brought it in from Studio B thinking I could use it for a backing on a quilt. While perusing black and white art on pinterest an idea flashed through my mind that said,"cut it up!" So I did.

Actually it looks a bit different now than the after picture because it is sewn together and waiting to be quilted, when I decide how I want to quilt it.

Got some new yarn recently, more of my cyber Monday shopping. A new cowl and a sweater are in my future.

The Weekly Leaf
I used another of the new stencils, one that also comes with the mask part.

With some paintstiks brushed on.

Week #51

Daily Stitching updates

Gelli prints #348-354

Shades of orange #275-281

Later this week I'll be linking up to "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"


  1. Yowza! What a great example of transformation if one is willing to give up original intent and start chopping. How exciting!

  2. Love the reworking of the circles!

  3. All I can say is WOW! I learn so much by observing your choices. You inspire play and experimentation.

  4. That is such a great idea! Love how the chopped up fabric looks revamped. Your leaf stitches are so beautiful.

  5. I adore the leaf from this week with the french knots around... gorgeous!

  6. Great save with the back and whites.
    I am really appreciating your French knots since I am now doing some on a jeans jacket. It actually leaves me with sore hands, but I do love the look. Yours are spectacular, as usual.
    Happy New Year!
