This week's inspiration comes from Pat Ferguson and I'll let her tell the story of her Giraffe:
"I had sandwiched the gradient and was going to tackle free motion quilting. It was in my stack for a very long time. I kept putting it off.
Then I purchased an acrylic painting of the giraffe. One day when the two unfinished projects bumped into each other in the basket I got an idea. I cut the giraffe out and laid it on the fabric. Voila! A new project was born. I don’t know the artist. I bought it in a shop that sells art from Africa. I now adore it on my wall."
She used a retired gradient called Seaworthy which shows the value of all of us who have rich stashes of fabric!
For sharing, Pat received a 20% coupon for the shop that's good for 3 months! If you have made anything with my hand dyed fabric I hope you will consider sharing it in the Customer Gallery. The only rule is that projects have to be complete. It doesn't have to be made totally from hand dyed fabric, just include a recognizable amount.
