What are you most proud of? I think this is a really cool finished piece and it was fun to make! The fibers could have just as easily ended up in the trash, but I keep all my cuts in a bowl on my sewing table.

It's so weird... cuz sometimes my comments to your kind comments don't show up.. so I comment again.. and then presto... the new and the original comment show up... I must be doing something wrong.

I used to have that problem. Now I know that at the end of my comment I click Enter and do it only once. Sometimes It takes a few seconds to appear.

Thanks! Yes, I've made a few now and gave this one as a gift. They were pleased too.

I have been having too much fun since reading this article! Have made several "constructed" bowls (i.e., not scraps, rather designed bowls). I love making the bottom layer a different color than the inner layer. Also fun to leave some more open or lacy areas-the quilting forms a bit of lattice. The one caution or challenge that I am currently working on addressing is that the bowls will wilt in more humid weather (yup, even in Colorado!). I am using a product called Paverpol water resistant fabric stiffener. It still wilts some, but much less. Next step: will try the fabric varnishes and/or a bit of Golden gel mediums. Plan is to try it as least in the base and partways up the sides. If anyone else has brilliant ideas, would love to hear about them. THis technique has opened up a whole new world of free motion quilting combined with fiber art.

And, shame on me! I should have led with, "Donaleek, your bowl is simply beautiful!"
