Cleaning off the sewing cabinet.......

Yesterday I started cleaning off the sewing machine cabinet to prepare for machine quilting and this piece was on there.  Since the raw edge strips were just pressed on the fusible batting and were starting to come loose I decided I needed to stitch it now.  Laying on the table with it is a page of photos from the last time I made something like this.  Go here to see it better.
A close up of the stitching and raw edges.
All of the strips are sewn securely in place so I can put it aside until inspiration hits.  I have no ideas right now.  The top of the cabinet is clean and I can start quilting today.

Wanda, No one gets more mileage out of fabric than you!

I love having something like that laying around just waiting....it makes creativity very spontaneous.
What fusible batting do you use?

That's such a happy piece; the colors and the uneven strips make me smile.

I need to do this with some of my ever-expanding tubs of strings!

Lovely lines of color. Love the texture of the quilting and raw edges.

Fun piece to find in your process of cleaning up your table. Have you ever figured out how much thread you use during a year ? Following you as I do... it has to be at least 100 a spools. Well almost (*._,*)

I like the fused strings! I can see this as a background for scenic quilt.
