Cindy reporting in from Ohio…the mid-western state with no snow in January!
For Christmas 2018, I received several lovely gifts that used non-fabric quilting mediums. My very dear friend (DF), decided to make a pieced Christmas tree for me from paper…it’s just lovely!
Paper is the perfect quilting medium when fabric is not at hand! DF also laminated this masterpiece so I can use it as a small place mat or coaster. Thank you, DF!
DF also made this beautiful picture for the wall of my sewing room. Paper applique…I am loving this as there were no edges to turn under. DF, I know you’re reading this…thank you again!
Mr. MH, the husband of a fellow guild member, made a “quilting block” (pictured below) for each guild member. It’s made from a scrap of wood from his wood shop.
This is super handy as it has: A nail for a spool of thread, a slanted hole for a pair of small scissors, a magnet on the side for pins, a foam pin cushion and a small hole filled with beeswax…very clever and practical for hand work!
Mr. MH even stamped the bottom with his personal logo and the year he made it.
Quilting inspiration is everywhere and comes in many forms. Thank you to all my dear, resourceful friends for sharing your inspiration with me!
