I wanted to do a quilt that represented where I am situated on holiday – rather than a teabag quilt. We bought some veg in a pretty bag with French words on.
I took the bag apart and cut out the decorated panel. I ironed some iron on facing on the back and used a paper towel for added strength.
I started embroidering my back stitch circles. I asked Dad if he had any old envelopes with postmarks or stamps on. He didn’t have any but he gave me a French stamp and an airmail sticker.
I decided to leave them just with running stitch around the edge
After yesterday’s cardabelle drawing I was delighted to find one on a bag Jon bought a croissant in from a bakers
I worked all over the bag in circles and straight lines – I thought I might add other pieces on top as I find them over the next week.
I like the back almost as much
You have amazing patience! Beautiful piece!
Thank you – it helps me slow down
