Elephants, peacocks ...and paisley

a bohemian  saree quilt

Back ground cotton material (both colours) has some machine embroidered patterns and, I thought of incorporating them as well to the patterns I have in mind.

The applique designs  do not have any templates, I draw them free hand on each block, or on the material and as I sew. They will look different from one another, which is what I have in mind. I am using cotton (mostly) for applique; I have cut up couple scarves that I no longer use among other scarps.

This project will keep me busy during the holiday break ....

Happy holidays my friends !

Here's wishing  a white Christmas ........

Thank you for stopping by to have a peek,
till next time,


  1. Hmm, I like your sewing and stitching, Gaja. And all free hand! During holidays I hope there will be silence and time to start working with all the dyed cloth.
    Hope, you understand, trying to read and write more English, Birgit

  2. the first elephant is so very rich looking, all very nice. Not so sure I want a white Christmas, actually we are having a very mild spell here has been warmer than some summer days

  3. Your project looks very promising - the elephants, the peacocks -I look forward to seeing more of it soon.

  4. This looks like a very interesting project Gaia - just right for the holidays :) Hope you have a lovely festive season - 'see' you next year!
