So how did this happen... well, it started several weeks ago when Monika asked me if I was interested in having a tutu with screen printing. She details our progress (well, me doing a lot of watching, while Monika did a lot of screen printing) over on her blog - Quilting Journey. Our first practice piece was a calico version of Nadia's name, then we proceeded to print on two pink pillow cases (photos not being co-operative, so check out the bottom of the post).
Home I came with the pillow cases, and the calico piece which got put on a pile of things and semi-forgotten. Until today. Today I also read Melody's (Melody of Fibre Mania) quilt along information on how she creates her wonderful fuses pieces. Ding ding went the little people in my head, and the rest is history. Or at least, Portfolio Cover (aka clear folder cover for school) now completed.

Maybe back to the buttons tommorrow??
