Books Number 4 and 5 ….only 3 more to go

 

This week I have been able to continue working on the covered books.

The first one started with a piece of fabric that I used to soak up excess dyes.  I really liked the mottled pastel color and  added the four borders.

Next step was to fuse the design and add some threadwork…..

The next book started  by going through a box of orphan blocks (those that were made but not used in a project).  I found a small hand painted design that I have NO idea where it came from.

I started by adding yellow borders and was just going to put another border around the edge.  Then I thought  BORING!!!!!!  so, I started angling the strips instead…..
