Attached see pictures of farm things (and a few other fill-ins that are not necessarily farm-y). It has one or more "weird" factors.
What you will see is the result of a lot of machine embroidery pictures that I sewed out quite a few years ago, collected from Emb.Library at least as early as 2008. The kitten is as big as the barn, if not bigger and, likewise all the critters and things are of varied sizes, so I was in a quandary as to how I could put them in a quilt, perspective-wise. Over several years, what they did was sit in a box (also have a PICNIC set in there ... for another quilt project). Recently, when I found myself with quite a bit of woodgrain fabric left over from Little Brown Bird, I decided to frame each of the farm pictures and 'hang' them on a fabric 'wall', which is what I've done. The next hurdles (besides perspective) were to deal with the different 'frame' sizes and how to secure the pictures to the 'wall'. I thought of panelling or wallpaper, but then I would either have to applique each one (YUK!!!) onto the 'wall' or strip piece the background. Nothing spoke to me! Then I remembered all the leftover Balli Pops from the French braid quilt top that I made in 2009. I pulled several each of 12 colors of those and made identical sets of those sewn together.
Now it really gets weird: I took great pains to make sure the strips were sewn and cut the same size vert. & horiz. (FYI, Bali Pops are cut extremely poorly ... possibly by small Asian children.) Then, just for laughs, I had to adjust most of them to fit around and between the frames ... because I did not have the foresight to ensure that the pictures would all fall into a 2" x 2" mathematical category. Thus, the carefully measured and cut strips are now a bazillion different sizes in order to fit around and butt up to the various sized frames. Eventually, I quit stewing about it and just did a basic 'cut & paste', so some are narrow, some are wide, etc.
This is to be a FMQ practice quilt. It has all the necessary things to make it perfect for a variety of stitches.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.
