Duets :: Sarah Ahearn :: Free Motion Quilted Happiness Hoop DIY

 Check out this free motion quilted happiness hoop that I made with Sarah Ahearn's lovely art.

You may remember the post where I talked about her beautiful 2011 calendar, right? So with the month of January having passed, I started getting cravings to do some free motion work with her January art. So with Sarah's blessings, I started on our first duet.

I traced a circle onto the art and cut it out. And also a slice out of the circle. Like a cake.

Then I layered it atop a paper doily and a piece of cotton batting and free motion stitched around the edges. Then I gathered a strip of light blue fabric that I gathered at one edge and stitched that down.

And then another strip of fabric at top with a free motion stitched word: happiness.

And then I got a woodedn embroidery hoop to use as a frame/display for the finished piece. So fun. Thank you, Sarah.
