I got a new ruler for Christmas; a ‘wedgey’ triangle one. And I didn’t want to ‘piece’ with it ~
and make some simple triangles.
Maybe I should have pieced it. I might be sorry. But since I planned to use pretty ribbons from my stash where the seams would be, I thought it would be too bulky when it comes time to topstitch them down, which I will do. And I have learned, that by the time I take ALL THAT TIME to piece it, and then cover up the seams with ribbon it’s kind of well, a waste of time.
I’m still using ‘what I have on hand’ and that meant going to my pre-cut, pre-fused bag of flowers I have in a nice little plastic bag, ready for action! Cutting out flowers from large-scale fabrics is a great winter project, sitting in front of our fireplace, watching a bit of football, NASCAR, or a some gold mining, sea fishing or lumberjack series… ahem! “Honey, can we watch a movie now?!”
And from some image in the back of mind, either spotted in a pattern or a magazine, or perhaps a flower… I decided this piece needed some curvy little tops on top of the triangles. There you go! “Fabric Fruit Pizza!” At least that’s my first thought after looking at it as a whole! Funny. Well to me, it’s funny; you? Maybe not.
