It really is very pretty and, as the month goes on, smells better and better!
This week I decided it was time to finish up my Scrap Dance Minuet tabletopper, and I realized that the fabric it's made of really reminds me of my marigold garden in August.
While I was choosing fabric to piece the backing, I noticed that there were several 2.5 inch wide strips leftover from piecing the top, and I decided to make a small topper, just the right size for the little chest that sits in my front entryway.
I pieced together some batting scraps,
and did a simple "quilt as you go" design using these strips.
Just for fun, I added some decorative stitching on each of the strips!
Here's my little finish, perfect for August!
Meanwhile, the original August Blooms project is spray basted, marked with my Hera marker, and quilting started!
Wow, that orange looks bright! It really isn't that bright -
still figuring out the new camera...
More about finishing up August Blooms later on this week!
