The new project

A couple weeks ago I had an idea. I thought it would be neat to make a collage sort of thing with fabric. When I had the idea, I pictured a tree that I really wanted to make.

I gave this to Bridger for his birthday, I think it turned out pretty well.


The tree was made of hexagons cut from fabric and the trunk was tiny strips of brown fabric. I then added a picture of an adorable dachshund, and printed some little birds which I watercolored.

Great. I was going to post about this but now I'll look like some two-bit copycat.

This thing really worked out well, I'm going to frame it.

You are great with your fabrics. I know a gal who makes framed art with fabric (very similar to this gift) and she charges up the wazoo and makes a fortune selling them.

You're a total artist, Sarah-Ahsley--not just a quilter--an artist.

This is absolutely charming.

Kristie said...

You're an inspiration. I also agree w/Jordan, you're an artist.

This appeared in our room here the other day. I wasn't sure where he got it from, and now I know. Very fancy. Great job.

I would like to know where that dachshund fabric came from. I have been looking for some of that. I like to think my doxies had something to do with that being on that quilt
