So, I decided that instead of being a little biased... I would be a little antique... ha! .. And as we all know... When we are a little antique, we can wear any and all colors together and wear big flowers in our hair cause it doesn't matter. We just wanna' have fun!
All of the fabrics that went in to creating my piece were cut from the vintage fabric squares! I sewed 2 pieces together to get my background and used another piece for the borders. Her dress, sunglasses, hair, hand and face are all vintage fabrics! I hope you love her as much as I do!
Here is a close up... Don't look at my embroidery too closely.. I am not the brightest student when it comes to embroidery! I quilted around her body and around the borders, stitching in the ditch, and then put a back on it and sewed it in the pillowcase method. Now it is ready for some fluffy stuffing and to be made in to a pillow!
I also wanted to show you what I am doing with the vintage squares.. I am bordering them with solid white fabric and then sashing them together with solid black. This way the entire piece of vintage fabric is showcased. I will have about 7 quilts in various sizes when I finish with them.
