The colors for this week are coral, teal, and a splash of bright white.
I had a coral fabric to use, but I had to dye a teal. None of the ones that I had were quite the right color. I love dyeing fabric all different colors so that I have a stash of fabrics to use when I want to make some textile art. I also dyed a piece going for a pinker coral. I added a little too much pink for it to work, but I still have the pretty fabric for something else.
After I got my fabric ready, I put the two pieces of fabric together with a piece of stabilizer in the middle. Then I free motion stitched flowers using a zig zag stitch. I cut the flowers out and stitched them to my teal quilt block with some white perle cotton thread. I love adding dimensional elements to my quilts.
I think that all the quilt blocks will look wonderful turned into a quilt at the end. It will really come to life when I add the stitching to the backgrounds. I hope you enjoy my creative process. Have a good week,

I have a loving husband who thinks I'm a bit crazy to be so obsessed with art. I am a mother of five children from ages 21 to 5. I spend most of my time mothering and keeping house. In my free time I like to play with textiles, art journaling and painting. I have a degree in textile and apparel studies with a design focus. Right now I am more interested in fiber arts than apparel design, but I don't know where my journey will take me.
