This fall I have gone in a direction that is so not me
and I am having so much fun with it.
I'm usually a pretty precise, organized quilter
who uses bright and fun fabrics, for the most part.
This fall I've been playing with ribbons and other trims, sequins, beads,
yarns, and silk fabrics and have done a lot of hand work.
Now I have a pile of Baubles and I love them!
I found an online course taught by Isobel Moore
and started collecting things to make these fun little ornaments.
The ribbons and trims are stitched down,
then some fun machine stitching happens,
and then the hand work is done, sewing on
beads and sequins.
Isobel teaches how to make fun trim to use for hanging the baubles.
These are my favorites!
Icy blues and silvers with a little white thrown in for contrast.
I've made three sets and have one more set to embellish and finish.
These have kept my hands busy and really pushed my creative juices
in a different direction.
I'm linking to Design Wall Monday today.
