Last week I was cleaning out my sewing closet. It was a deep cleaning. I went through every bin and basket and folder. I gave fabric and yarn away to my quilt guild. Plus an unfinished baby afghan that I thought I didn't want to take on. Also if I keep fabric and yarn I don't like I feel a pressure to use it. So I got rid of it and others did want most of it. That makes me so happy.
I also found some projects I had started maybe 5-10 years ago, but had never gotten very far. Today I'll share one with you.
I love Baltimore Album quilts. I have never made one. But I did start one.
I have several of Elly Sienkiewicz's books which is where I got my pattern. I might have changed it some since that is what I usually do.
If I remember correctly I was planning on making a wall hanging and every square was going to be different baskets with flowers or fruit.
I wove the basket. The fabric feels like a suede. I think I used whatever fabrics I could find around the house.
I love how the leaves stand out. Elly has lots of dimensional ideas in her books. The dark purple flower flaps out also.
And I did these flowers out of wire edged ribbon. I do believe they're supposed to go on the square but my drawing shows one, not two. I'll have to look through the books and see where I got the idea for this square.
I do want to complete it and go from there, at least for a wall hanging.
