I have loved Sarah Jane's "Wee Wander" collection for Michael Miller fabrics since the first time I laid eyes on it, and waited for quite a while to cut into it (just couldn't bring myself to do it!).
But now, I'm so glad I did. Because this collection has inspired me to try new techniques - trapunto with applique, and now, free motion embroidery/quilting with trapunto. Not only do I love actually using these techniques, but I also really like the dimension and originality they are adding to this quilt - which is for a young family member.
The Wee Wander collection features young children engaged in watching and catching fireflies, playing with fluttering birds, riding horses through breezy meadows and, generally, engaging with Nature.
I have taken elements from the fabrics - the flowers in the horse meadow, and the fireflies in the mason jar print - and have added them as individual elements across the white areas of the quilt.
I think the result is magical. This quilt is still in its infancy, there are many more blocks, borders, applique and embroidery elements to
be added - so exciting!!!
