I was trying to do odd quilting to make it look like the flowers are in a square vase or flower box of some kind . I guess I should have used a darker thread for quilting .I am not used to this type of quilting on rusty fabric.
This shows some lace and heavy string I am using to make it more Antique. I will be adding beads and possibly more laces .I want it to be unique. At one time I thought to add more fabric to the flowers to make them 3 demension , I have not decided yet how I want to do that . I will post as I go along .
Any suggestions are welcome.!
The background fabric for these was muslin I had on hand to soak up leftover paint dyes from another project, I thought they looked pretty good so, I used them for these flowers. The flowers are cut outs with wonder under.Machine quilted .
They are 2 sizes ,can be hung like I have them or separtate. Or they can be used as a table top.
I decided to do something with the rust fabric I dyed last summer , I had this fabric Iris (Fat Quarter) for a long time and thought it would make a nice wall hanging with the rust.
I had a difficult time trying to quilt on the rusty fabric , not sure why . I tried to show up close with the quilting ,cannot see it for the thread being the same color!
I will be showing more wall hangings that I finished the bindings on today , 4 all together.
I will show those tomorrow .

This is an old old door handle off a shed that was tore down.from 20 years ago .I kept it this long ,I am not sure what to do with it but I love the design on it , maybe a good quilt design ?
I guess I got too close ,picture is some fuzzy.
By the way I have been making wall hangings and hope to have new pictures up soon.

All these are some of the flowers in my yard that have bloomed this year ,I am really surprised they are still alive with this heat , I water them when it doesn't rain , if I can stand the heat to do so.
I know I took more photo's guess I still need to up-load them.
This is the Baby Quilt I made for Jon and Dana's New baby Girl ~ Not born yet, I sent it in mail on Monday ,they got it today.Dana Loves it ,it will go along with the Minnie Mouse Theme she has started .
These are 2 close ups ., Can't wait to see pictures of the new baby when she gets here!
This is part of a wall hanging I am quilting , I wanted to do something a little bit different, I used more wonder under for another big flower on the quilt to try to make it look 3 dimension.
I have not decided yet how or if I am even going to go with this, if I do I have to figure out how I want to attach it and if I want a finish around each petal of the flower.
Here is some of the quilting detail that will be on other parts of the quilt , I have some lace on there now that I plan to add more embellishments to it. Hopefully I can get more of this done this week.
We will see !
