calico & linen :: complete

Another baby complete, this one commenced on quite a blue day back in dec 10, so this one will always have particular memories for me.  I'm happy to have finished it and I'm happy with the end result.  It's quite plain and has fabrics that I love on it - linen, double gauze (not that you can see a great deal of it in the pic) and some liberty.  I like that some of the raw edges will fray with washing, I love the feel of it.  All the quilting was done with either linen coloured or off white linen thread.

There is a bit of pulling around quite a large section of close quilting, much like some of the work I did on my collages, I don't mind - let's say it adds character and I do love the feel it gives.


  1. so gorgeous, lisa. seriously, a work of art.

  2. Sometime simplicity shines the most. It takes real skill to make something look simple yet so beautiful and inspiring. Lovely project
