Take a look at all these beauties. They are all done in various Sassaman fabric lines.
Another impressive, colorful quilt. I really love those spikes. I love her bold and powerful designs. I want to make quilts like these!
While I was thread painting my leaves on the piece from my class Saturday, I thought of the sampler Jane Sassaman showed us in the class I took a few months ago. Seeing all the options she presented gives me ideas for all the things you can do with this new skill. Jane incorporates zig-zag and decorative stitches as a feature on many leaves.
Just a seam treatment...I like to do more than one stitch on a seam to make it more interesting. The blue sequins are off of a stretchy belt, probably from a dance costume, that I picked up at Sally Ann's. I just had to snip some threads and off they came!
This was the last little bit I did on Lynn's CQ RR block. It's a lace flower that I sew one of the faces I had hand stitched a tiny face for a Dotee Doll. I never used this one and she is so cute. I love her lips! I stitched sequins with beads around her face and in some of the petals for shimmer.
