Look What I Found!

I have been doing some tidying of my studio recently, partly due to having taken soooo much stuff to the Laura Edgar workshop at Ballarat and needing to put it all away again. I decided to be tidy and put my stuff in 'sensible' places, accessible places. Wonder how long that will last. And if I will be able to find everything.

While I was deciding where some of it should go, I came across an old piece that I had started after an Olga Walters workshop - years ago. So long ago I can't remember the actual date. Maybe the 90's, early 2000's?

It was when I was first taught some of the possibilities of Vliesofix and was encouraged to be more adventurous with free motion stitching.

It has some fabric that has been fussy cut (very fussily) and then placed on the backing. All of it is commercial fabric, I don't do a lot of dyeing of my own cottons. It has wool batting/wadding (I never know what we call it in Australia, I think we use both terms) and backing fabric. It is really a rather traditionally constructed quilt, just not the usual proportions.

It is currently lying on my cutting table, while I think about whether to work on it, to continue to play with some of the techniques I have just learnt with Laura, and which I need to try or I will forget them, or whether to actually get out the tapestry loom.

Too many choices - hope they don't freeze me!

This piece looks so good that I think you should finish it! Or cut it up and use the pieces for other projects. It's too pretty to abandon again.
