I have completed my first Fidget Quilt. It was completed with items and fabrics from stash: some red corduroy, quilting fabrics, fuzzy knit binding, a bit of mesh web and a shaped cut of yellow duck, plus some Pure and Natural thin cotton batting for a little bit of body.
|Echo quilting inside the flame|
|The underside of the flame|
|Layout of flame, zipper, and on the left a tassel and embroidery bits, with candidates for top and bottom edges. Only the cows and sunflowers print was used as the top then was the correct size.|
|The pool of bits n bobs. Used: the shell, the flame, yellow-bound zipper, flame, and some odd bits.|
Fireline to go through all of it again. A loop of fabric was added near the top and a jingle bell tied on to it, also. The odd bits of things--an antiqued brass disc, a tiny dove, a beach shell--were securely sewn down. The zip was attached around the edge of the binding with a blind-hem stitch.
After all the quilting was done and the dangly bits added, a brown bias binding was added to all four edges.
Ready for delivery.
