Amazing Fabrics

This was a challenge swop in Surface Design where we had a to chose a color that represented something to us. I think of Orange and yellows bright inspiring colors.....wakes you up and say hey look at me .. make me beautiful.
Well these Batik Flannels did just that along with another one of my word fabrics collected to my stash and treasured.
If you have not investigated batik Flannels do so you will be amazed at the VIBRANT colors and makes you want to play with it... the photo just does not do it justice...I love the flannel aspect because it frays and you can cut it out as I did here for the flowers and the edges just add to the project. also because of the softness of the fabric when you machine stitch it quilt or embroider it adds to the livcliness. It is great for many project .. from ATCS to PCs and journal pages and of course Art quilts. They are whatI used in the Looner Love quilt posted on my blog. I have collected many colors and can seem to do so much with them. So next time you are out stash building ... look for them... you will be glad you did.
Create ....and follow your heart

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
