collaged runner ~ hello beauties

hello beauties!!

no... i haven't stopped making collages.  nor cutting out flower shapes!  as some commercial or something like that once said... "a day without  cuttable, fusible, flowers... is a day without sunshine?!!"  ok.  maybe not.  but it works for me!

just a small table runner that says "hello my spring beauties" and i say that to each of you who read the blog!  

you are beautiful.  

have a blessed day!

o hello spring ~ a collage mug runner

hey  ~

here's an example of mini-collage ... you know... for those little bits of leftover floral motifs.  the background fabric is a leftover scrap of batik.  and i picked colors that were complimentary to it, creating chat i call a "mug runner." that would be "runner" as in larger than a mug rug, but large enough for coffee and a snack!  lol

spring continues to buffet us here in central montana with a warm wind, and morning temps of over 40 degrees.  the geese are here... the grass is greening up... could spring be making an early appearance?  
maybe... we shall see!
"o ~ hello spring"
{even if it is only temporary!}

Cosmo Wonder

--- "Cosmo Wonder" Fabric Paper Collaged Quilt ---   
Latest in my attraction to fabric paper quilts, and
inspired by one of my most favorite flowers to grow in the garden:   

I really enjoy using a very thick thread; it's like maybe 26 weight, made by YLI thread company, and designed by Laura Heine of Fiberworks Quilt Shop in Billings MT.  It's called  FUSIONS.  Love-love-love it. It gives a nice, thick punch of color and texture.  But you must use a 100/16 size top stitch needle if you want a smooth flow.  Then take it for a spin.
I usually put a  40 weight cotton or polyester in my bobbin, and (per usual procedure) lower my tension at least one level.
