More Wobbly Bits
A close up of the stitching and raw edged fabric centres although they are not all that apparent.
This is a much brighter yellow so the two aren't meant to go together. Yesterday I cut the centres to open them out. I really want to get some texture into this one as well but I don't like the rectangles as much as the squares to work with. I haven't any definite ideas of how I want this to look eventually but I think I want the flaps to open only slightly - that could be a problem. I also don't know whether I want to fill the centres with stitching or beads or just leave them. In the photo they appear quite bare so I'll try out some ideas. The quilting poses some problems too because the satin stitching extends into the border area and when I quilt it these will become raised which is an effect I don't want. I think there is enough going on with the stitching and the fabric so I will probably quilt it with matching thread. Decisions, decisions!
