Overkill?

12 comments
Sometimes when I start on a theme or an idea that I like, I keep going on the idea and working in different directions around it until I get my fill and then I move on. Well, I'm still fixated on the matryoshkas. I sewed and quilted a matryoshka banner to hang in my sewing room. It was a lot of fun and it came together fairly quickly. The border fabric on the banner (I only had a tiny bit of it) was my inspiration point. Its pieced, not appliqu├ęd because I wanted to see what one of these dolls would look like if pieced into a little quilt instead of stitching it on top.

Posed next to it is a little matryoshka I got from Ravenhill at her Etsy Shop. She is very darling. I'm going to sit her next to my other ones on the shelf in my sewing room.

I think I might have one more matryoshka project in me. We'll see. I'm enjoying these little women.
