Goodness Gracious, Great Ballz of ????

So, I thought I would give Jan Mullen’s “Magic Ballz” technique a go – as described in this book:

I pulled together some of my stash of bright reds and orange fabrics and came up with this:

orange ball

No, I’ve no idea what it’s all about either 🙂

I don’t like it enough to want to make it into a wall quilt. I didn’t enjoy the process enough to want to make a whole quilt of ballz. And I’m not sure my hand stitching makes it robust enough for a potholder. Any ideas?!?!

Oh well, at least it’s got me back in the swing of sewing!

    mug rug? If you have a big enough scrap of one of the spokes, I’d use it as backing and have a coaster or mug rug =)

    Looks like a tasty Danish pastry. Cakey themed collage?

    I like it a lot, and it looks like the center of a flower to me – maybe add some petals around it?
