For my first "Departure" quilt, I made one from hundreds of tiny pieces totally on the sewing machine ... not a hand stitch on it! After pinning it to the wall and staring at it for a month, I decided that it just wasn't "me!" No texture at all. So .... I choose do something I had been wanting to learn how to ... nuno felting.
This quilt consists of 6 pieces of nuno felt and a small length of commercial rose ribbon. The process was fun, but awful hard on a body with arthritis! At least I've learned that felting is probably not an art I will pursue very often!
