And Now For Something Completely Different
Anyway - I backed the shiny slippery fabric with a lightweight fusible and then with Wonder Under so I could fuse the circles in place. After I cut out five circles I played with them for a while but the design was sort of predictable and boring. So I started taking the leftover pieces and adding them to the design. It took a lot of playing around - but I like the final design.
My favorite part is the fact that the colors shift whenever you move to a slightly different angle. I used metallic thread for the quilting and, amazingly, it never once broke and made me mad. And that is a miracle. I did use those wonderful 90/14 titanium topstitch needles from Superior.
I enjoyed this detour from my normal projects. Now I just need to figure out where I am going to hang this quilt... hmmmm..... barbara
