I had a spare 'blackbird' left over from my Morning has Broken Mini Quilt - I used bondaweb to attach it before sewing it down, and it seems no matter how many times I use the stuff I still frequently forget how easy it is to end up with your image transposed! So I had a poor, unwanted blackbird, facing the wrong way for my quilt and in need of a new home. I was tempted to put him on a cushion, but decided in the end to go for another wool tablet/ipad case. Here he is, feeling loved and wanted again.
|I went for a less dense look with the stitching on my branch on this one, and I think I prefer it.|
The wools are so different to the batiks I used in the mini quilt and yet I feel both pieces have a really similar feel. It's amazing how versatile wool is.
Back again tomorrow,
