As usual my idea turned into something a little different. This is my entry in a swap I'm doing with Art-e-zine. It's the first time I have played with these ladies, but must admit I have wanted to for a long time. The size was a little tricky for me.. 3 x 3.5 with a 1/2 inch added for binding.

I used pieces from a quilt that my husbands grandmother had made as my base. Grams was a avid quilter using fabrics from just about anything she could. Now days we would call her a recycler... but in her time it was out of necessity and a upbringing of waste not, want not... I have collected a few of her quilts from family over  the years. The rest of my assembly was done with fabric transfer paper onto chiffon with some lace. Humpty is made from half a wooden egg.

This was a fun swap. I have a zillion other ideas for other rhymes. Looks like I have a book of my own in the making.
