I recently finished this this small wall hanging piece.

I’ve titled it, “Into The Mist”.  I used an old scrap of some random Japanese import fabric that I’ve loved and had in my stash for years but could never find the right place for,  and a couple of Kona solids, along with my favorite- an assortment of linens.

 I love the feel and look of linen, and in this piece I used two different colors and weaves.

 I think they are perfect for improv designs because of their….ahhh,  “flexibility”. You can just let them go where they want to and it becomes part of the design as opposed to trying to make them fit into a design that requires matching points (like the with this frustrating quilting experiment).

The binding on this piece was an experiement of sorts.  I used this tutorial- quite loosely- and found it helpful.  I need a bit more practice with the method but for a first attempt, I’m happy with it.    I am still playing with different methods of finishing small wall hanging pieces like this.

Hope your weekend is fabulous!!
