Ardis Wannabe Project for this Month
Our Ardis Wannabe (artist want-to-be) item pulled from the bag at last Guild Meeting was a little brass bell. For those who choose to participate, we can create anything, using that item as inspiration to make something - no rules except it has to be DONE, and we suggest Keep It Simple. mmmm, well, there is the old farm dinnerbell on my back porch, and that's as far as my pea brain would go, and THAT was no-where. But, I've wanted to try Tonya's LazyGal Free Form letters for a long time, and this is what came out of it tonight during a sewing frenzy - strips everywhere, threads, cut-offs etc. (I did not include a photo of the floor!) LOL I only thought of using 2 highly contrasting fabrics. Thanks Tonya for the idea! Words look so cool in a quilt border and this was my trial run. This took me about 2 hours with some short breaks to stretch. Wonky was what I wanted! I won't be hesitant to try them again on a REAL quilt.
