I was inspired today to finish my Bible cover that I started last week. I just wanted to do something simple. I cut some small triangles for the flower petals, some circles for the flower middles, and then appliqued them on with clear thread. Then I meandered the rest of the cover. I just had to make something to get back to sewing.
I also started a new project. From the book Happy Villages by Karen Eckmeier (www.quilted-lizard.com) comes the inspiration for this little project. This little hamlet was all cut out and glued down in about 2 hours.
The above photo is after the tulle is quilted down. The quilting took about an hour. It is about 22 inches square and I haven't put on the binding yet. This bright little village was so much fun, I started another one. Aren't the trees great? My DD, 8, cut them out for me. This project hasn't been quilted yet.
