Carpenter's Tools are in the bag. Irene MacWilliam

I bought some narrow striped black and white fabric at FOQ after much searching. However when I got it back to the hotel I discovered it was navy and white. Although the tools look to be a different fabric it is an illusion, it is due to the black and red vertical lines of quilting. The stripes are so narrow that I am not sure I could make a large hanging with this fabric. 


  1. This is very effective.As you say ,it does give the effect of applied fabric.

  2. Love how the thread work changed the cloth appearance. It's a great illusion.

  3. How clever is this!! So very well thought out and great use of your technique.
