A Finish


I found this in one of my scrap boxes. The flower and the vase was already made, and I had abandoned it because of my failed attempt of using fabric paint. Yes, there is a jingle bell on the flower.  I was originally trying to put something over the paint to cover it up. I could either throw it away or finish it. Since I was in the "anything works" mode for the rail fence, I grabbed a few fabric scraps to finish it off. I was a little bit more selective than the rail fence, but not by much. Whatever my first idea was, that's what I did. No debate. No worries.

It is 9" x 11".  I am going to add this post to AmyLou's Sew and Tell Friday.

Liberated quilting, for sure...way to go! We all spend so much time being picky and selective that we often miss out on the freedom and joy. This screams out both in a lovely, fun way!

The best finishes are those that we commit to completing and don't second guess ourselves on or fret over... well done; it's wonderful!

What a cute block, I can understand why you abandoned it, if it didn't turn out like you wanted but from my stand point, it is just wonderful. Glad you re rescuing it.
