I was mulling over ideas for a personal swap and feeling a bit stuck until @MistressJennie posted a link to a little star shower quilt and shortly afterwards @Abbeeroad posted a ticker tape mug rug she made, then I knew just what I wanted to try! It helped that I had a pile of newly acquired batik fabrics sitting on the table, they are so inspiring just to look at. It was really fun playing with placement.
The pieces were backed with fusible webbing then adhered to the black fabric. I figured out a stitching pattern that covered each edge just once for all the squares, then another round for the points leaving a single row of stitching around every piece of fabric.
Some random geometric lines in the empty spaces, then the binding of scrappy bits a la @TheMistressT. So you see, this was inspired by many of the crafters here which is my absolute favourite sort of project. The making and giving of such an object feels very community connected to me. I just love that
