I used an old wine bottle as my fabric bits were not large, but scrappy leftovers, and the intention was to experiment as I haven't done this for some time. It was mentioned on the Contemporary Quilt Group yahoo list and a link given, which spurred this activity.Finished result, ironed, and looking a lot paler in this photo that in real life!
see here, at an art and crafts fair at which our church stitching group had a stand last week. Some bits have worked better than others, depending on the type of cloth, and there is a mix here. I don't know what they are, being unmethodical. Also I have difficulty pullling the stitches up tight enough to resist enough often. But again, the pieces all have more marks on them that this photo seems to show.
