Art Quilt Workbook day.....This month is collage.  When the group met last week, we pulled all types of trims and pieces out of a bag I had from Deana.  A really ugly green sheer ribbon spoke to me.  I think it was saying, "You would never use me, or make me beautiful."   Ha, Ha!  I did use it for my second exercise.  Fooled me!  The small  focus fabric has a frog and iris  on it and tiny script around it.  One phrase caught my eye.....So this  is called "Take the Leap".   I plan on adding beads or buttons down the left of the darker needs something else.  On to the theme project.
I am using the photo of Knaresborough Bridge --a do over--for my theme project.   I am not sure if this is the placement I will use or not, so I will live with it for a few days to be sure.  Two sides of the photo are finished off and will be stitched down, and the other 2 sides will be frayed and top stitched down.  I wanted to show that the original pen and ink was torn out of a sketchbook, passed along  in the family, and finally framed to hang in my dining room.  The large piece of fabric for the background is a tone on tone print with a swirl design (it doesn't show well in the photo).  I like the movement, as it represents the water and should show quilting really well.
Ok, enough for today.  Off to get the room cleaned up.
