Sewing Day

This is my project for the tool time challenge. I titled it Sewing day. It is a mini quilt for the box of chocolates that is attached to the top so it looks more 3D. The tape measure, thread spool, needle, rotary cutter, iron are all fused and the square of fabric is applique. I used a Pentel Fabric Pen to draw on the details for the tape measure, iron, and thread. I also used the fabric for the background that had quilt block names on it as a nod to the traditional quilting. I love that this was a quick fun project that I just drew up and made in a few hours without over thinking it. I chose these tools to represent that you start with inspiration - chocolate of course! - and then great fabric then use tools to measure and cut and sew and I threw in the iron because I just love to press the heck out of things. This was made in DeKalb, IL
