Kitchen Art!

Another batch of UFOs made into something...

I found some lonely yo-yos in a bag while reorganizing my sewing room. They are lonely no more! The flower stems were made with the help of the wonderful Clover Bias Maker gadget, and I drafted the vase and freezer paper foundation pieced it. The whole thing is backed with flannel to give it some body, and I did some simple running stitch embroidery to add a bit of detail.

I hung it in the kitchen, and somehow it looks like it has always been there.

OMG, I love it! Do you love it? Too simple for a pattern? It would look lovely in my booth. (Hey, what about the Houses, KQ?) (Hey, is that my fabric in the background?!!) So many techniques, though. A class?

Yep! That's Kallisti Quilts hexagon fabric at the top, and a bit of an older, brown Japanese patchy print at the bottom, also K Quilts. See? I DO actually cut it up and use it!
