417 is my favorite number. I was so excited to find it on a clothing tag. I hoarded it for years until I started this magpie girl art quilt. It was the perfect color and adds a little more of me to this quilt. This is the art quilt I demo from start to finish in my class for STITCHED 2015.
This collection is mostly navy blue and bits of silver and a some white lace. Some of the charms stitched into the ruffles, Iâ€™d had for over a decade.
As I wander the world I do search for treasure – not always in charm or trinket form – sometimes in fabric, postcards or memories.
She wanders the world to find treasure (17â€ x 21â€)
If you want to see how this quilt was created, sign up for STITCHED 2015. Iâ€™ve been having so much getting to know the students, watch the videos and create blocks based on the block-of-the-month pattern.
