Here is my newest creation. My husband has been calling it "Red Planets". It started out as an experiment in using muslin as the batting. Well that FAILED! I did not like the way the machine stitching came out using the muslin, it only seamed to bunch and wad the fabric. The muslin just did not have enough body and weight to support all of the machine stitching. I scraped the whole thing and started over in a totally different color. I really like how the red thread looks on the black fabric. I wanted a hint of stitching on the black so that the marbled fabric would stand out.
