Christmas Stars

I patched this quilt in 2007, but never finished it. Last week I added batting and a backing, so now it’s ready to quilt. The centre star is part of the quiltpattern Aurora Stars, designed by Shelley Swanland.

I made another selvage ATC for a swap. The lace flower is attached with French knots.

ICAD 2018

This year I participated in ICAD (Index Card A Day) for the third time. There was a weekly theme with daily prompts. You can find the theme and prompts at Daisy Yellow.
61 index cards
I made collages,
one staple collages,
a mandala in Daisy Yellow style
and doodles.
a doodled pretzel
Of course there was some embroidery, like the fringe of this altered woman.
And an experiment with tie dye fabric and embroidery floss.
I made this card on the day our dear Cindy passed away, we miss her!
For the last week I took Ihanna’s challenge to start every index card with the same paper in the same spot.
7 index cards with the same striped paper in the upper left corner, waiting for decoration
It resulted in 7 very different collages.
Now I’m working on a box for my index cards. I stitched this label in cross stitch and backstitch on Aida.
