Quilting Flotsam

I've seen many beautiful art pieces with circles lately and love the look and wanted to duplicate it in some way.  I collected discarded bits of fabric and threads (flotsam) from the floor of my quilting studio and made them into circles and glued them onto a quilted 12x12.  Sewing the circles down made them flat and I really wanted them to stand out so I resorted to fabric Mod Podge.  I used a blue hand dye to give an oceany feel and hoped the circles looked like they were floating flotsam.

  1. Oooh - I really love this! What a cool way to use up thread - and make a really interesting piece with it. :)
