MY FIRST BASIC CRAZY QUILT BLOCK

The class was instructed to use neutral or pastel cotton fabrics. I found it difficult to sew these neutral fabrics together, but I must remember the purpose for this class is to learn seam template design on a basic block.

 My basic block framed with my first stitches. It's plane Jane for now and I hope it gets better along the way.

I pulled out my stash of beads, thread and pendants and purchased a few more for this class.




This is my first attempt at embroidery and I finally got over the fear of making a "French Knot".
A big "Thank-You" to Mary Ann for posting Kathy Shaw's Basic Quilting Course on her blog "My Tate Gallery" (http://mytategallery.blogspot.com/). Mary Ann is always so good at keeping her readers/blog friends informed of new courses and classes. She has a lovely blog.

ELF ART DOLL




ELF ART DOLL by Bethann  Scott
 My inspiration color came to life this week with a small twist, I used a totally different fabric than the original organza that I draped over her shoulder. Much of her costume is needle felted including her Elf hat and slippers.


She sits atop a Mushroom that I created. I love the movement and colors. I was going to make a pair of wings, but that will be for the next doll.

THE RIGHT COLOR

I just finished sewing a Fairy Elf Doll and am choosing the color for her costume. I find it helpful to place fabric over the doll's body and take photos. I'm always fascinated how color changes the look of a doll.

SPRING RABBIT DOLL

Spring is on it's way!!
Wool Rabbit by Bethann Scott

To celebrate March and the soon arrival of spring, I made a grey wool rabbit. The rabbit is button jointed and can sit with legs positioned up or down. I needle felted soft white lamb's wool to the muzzle, tummy and tail. I will be making a couple of these rabbits and then on to finish the art dolls I've been working on.l
