What I've Been Working On!!

Just wanted to share a little piece that I've been working on.  I'm FINALLY getting back to what I love the most.  Which is, of course, working with vintage fabrics and quilty things. 

This little piece is composed of vintage barkcloth for the house (which I can't seem to get enough of since making my bed quilt), a vintage pink polka dot and floral for the background.  Since there was gold flecks in the barkcloth piece, I thought metallic gold rickrack was perfect for it!  Otherwise embellished with vintage buttons, rickrack and other trim.  An aqua feedsack is on the back and wrapped to the front for finishing.  All the pieces were cut freehand without a pattern and free motion quilted.  Seriously need to work on my quilting! 

Another little piece is in progress.  Will share it when it's done.  Hope you're having a fabulous week! 

See you next time~
