At the end of my Sisters trip, I pieced this together. I simply wanted a background of my hand-dyed fabric to embroider on. I wanted to see how it was to stitch through. (My hand-dyes so far are muslin and Robert Kaufman’s Kona PFD fabric.) I just intended to do some straight line stitching on it. Then it just seemed like it needed some circles. Some of the circles are stitched straight on the fabric, while others have a solid appliqué background. BTW, my hand-dyes are LOVELY to stitch through. Not hard to figure out, since both of those fabrics are not tightly woven.
Since this was a quilt that I started while traveling, and continued to work on at home and in my travels, this seemed like the perfect verse. I used variegated thread for the lettering. I should probably stop doing that…
I do love my little circles. I guess you could tell that by the amount of pictures I take of them 🙂
For these circles, I made a rule that I could only use the running stitch (of course the appliquéd edges are blanket stitch.)
I put a question mark after “Finished?” in the title, because I think this little piece might need a bit more quilting in the background.
Here is one more look at a quilt I think I already shared with you. It is bound now, and it really is finished.
