    More Decorative Stitches

    I am enjoying playing with the decorative stitches on my machine! This frame has been sitting in my studio for ages with nothing in it, so I decided that it needed an art quilt. The little quilt is only 2 inches by 3 inches and didn't take very long at all to make, but it makes me smile. So of course I took it to work so that I can tantalize myself with visions of quilts to come. Lol! Thank you for looking!

    That's a beautiful piece of art. Looks like you are well on your way to making something big & beautiful. I like the colors you used in your art.

    beautiful mini landscape
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You know you are a quilter when you notice the frame more than the contents and think "what a great quilting motif that frame would be"

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Great idea. Bigger would work, too.

    That is very creative. You could do a whole quilt with these type blocks. I bet you create something extra-ordinary.

    A perfect idea for those small frames that we have or can acquire easily. And what a great little gift they would make.

    What a wonderful little project. Something great for when you want to sew, but you don't want to sew......absolutely lets your creative juices flow.

    Very nice original idea & great color choices. I keep thinking that as soon as I get caught up, I would like to do something with my decorative stitches, also.
