As usual, in December, the photo quality is much diminished. Today, I want to introduce you to Blue Ornaments, my mini quilt of the month for the month of December.
This little quilt provided a little distraction from the Quote Quilt until I realized I am going to add fusible to the backing, and not the front of the quilt. This means, I can keep adding more stuff to the Quote Quilt while I prepare the backing and fusible. I'll show you my additions to the Quote Quilt in another post.
In the meantime, this little quilt is a wholecloth quilt made with three circles from a fabric I recently got from Joanns. I think it is pretty enough to stand on its own as ornaments. I quilted the sandwich lightly, added the ornaments with a decorative stitch, and then quilted it a bit more with a Decobob thread I got as a sample.
The backing is the same fabric as the binding. I took photos of it outside in the snow, but they were all upside down. I didn't want to confuse you more than needed in a topsy turvy year, so this photo will have to do until I can get a better photoshoot. By that time, I might have added some bows to the strings.
