I made this little "quilt" for my serger the other day. My thinking is that it hopefully will help muffle the noisiness of the serger when I really get 'er rip. (Since I usually sew during kiddos sleepy time.)
This fabric makes me smile every. single. time. I see it! Gorgeous, huh? It's Amy Butler's Peacock Feathers (in sea glass) from her Soul Blossoms line. I got a fat quarter of it to see how the colors were in real life (it looked a bit bright online), and they are gorgeous! They are bright, but not neon by any means. I want a whole bolt of this stuff!
I could re upholster my computer chair, make pillows, curtains, bags, hang it on the ceiling just to stare at while I fall asleep...
Here's an establishing shot. This is where I serge. and that over there on the left is where I sew. and that on the right is my pile of stuff to fix/start. That pile has been around for awhile.
This is my set-up, pre cute quilt. AHHHHHH! not as cute, huh. Some folded up, thread-covered felt just doesn't have the same effect as....
....Amy Butler....I'm in love! (with the fabric, not Amy, but I'm sure she's nice and all)
It even coordinates with my dial thingy bobs!
