good morning glories ~

it’s pretty doggone simple.  a  “jelly roll” of kaffe fasset fabric in solids and stripes ~ you know, those attractive pre-cut 2.5″ strips in such pretty colors.  add {extra leftovers} of pre-fused floral shapes… and there you go.  a beautiful and bright collage; a sweetly casual and very practical and fun summery table topper in completed in just a couple hours. 

i actually made two from the jelly roll bundle i had… this one i quilted free motion style.  it would be super fun to stitch it in straight lines… which is exactly what i did what the other half!  {i’ll show it later}.  so. fun. quick.  easy!  {what more could ya ask for?!}

i added a solid kaffe shot cotton for the backing.  i love how the quilting makes it ‘pop’ and it totally makes it reversible if you need to “calm things down” a bit!!  lol

so come on in, sit at my table, and enjoy the view of gorgeous color!

oh.  and by the wayside… no planning.  i just randomly sewed the strips, alternating solid with stripe.  

and my thread of choice was superior’s king tut variegated in the top, and masterpiece in the bobbin.  my ‘go-to’ team of threads!

and backside:

yes!  i had a great time.  i’m pleased with how this turned out, and yes… they are both now listed in my shop, too. and with many happy hours later, stitching up strips of color, i hope to explore some other options and designs.  we shall see! 

soli deo gloria!
blessings abundant to each of you,

  1. You must have a ginormous stash to always have just the right piece for your project. Love all your collages.

  2. Leslie,
    You will want to fix the link that comes up for going to your shop, turns out to be someone else's.
    Your work is so inspiring. I love that you use lots of color and aren't afraid to just 'go for it'. Only recently have I done some improvisationally pieced items. It was so freeing.
    Keep on doing your thing!
