I added some hand dyed brown bird silhouettes and fused them into place with some Mistyfuse. Then I dug through my collection of vintage mother of pearl buttons and added some of those to keep the rusty, vintage theme going. Plus, who doesn't love buttons?!
I love the texture and the bleed you get from the rust. It's the same piece of metal but it makes something different each time I use it. As you will see in the upcoming quilt pieces. I have already started arranging my next piece. I am so inspired by the rust that I am having a constant creative flow of ideas of what to do next. Don't you just love when that happens?
One more quick peek at this piece and I am off to other things. The title of this quilt was inspired by my daughter. She graduated college about a year ago and went off on an adventure. Every time I talk to her I am so happy to hear about how much she loves her life and her new discoveries.
