Fabric Inchies!!!!

Yesterday the fabric inchies from the latest trade on Aus_NZ Quilters (a yahoo group) arrived and they are just gorgeous. I've temporarily stuck them all on an A4 piece of black cardstock so that I can have them on my sewing room wall while I ponder a longer term mounting solution - don't they look fabulous altogether?!. This lot are "beige" (lovely wide interpretation!) and they are joining the blue and metallic sets which I have also mounted the same way.

The next round is themed "plastic" so that is going to be very interesting!! Needless to say we are all looking at everything around us with different eyes now - I think there will be some very inventive additions of plastic (melted, laminated, distorted and plain!!) to these mini fabric quilts. I'm planning on trying several of theh techniques from the "Hot Textiles" book which I just love.

PS. I managed to get very busy this week and have barely been on the computer so if you are waiting for a reply from me about anything please know that I am not ignoring you and will get to it this weekend.

Your inchies look fabulous, looking forward to seeing how you finally put them all together (I think they look pretty good on the A4 !!!).
Sara Lechner (the Fabric of Meditation) ran a fabulous inchie swap and I think there is a link on her blog which shows what people did with theirs. I love how Sara presented hers...AMAZING and well worth a look.

I love seeing all those inchies together. Each one is a work of art within itself. I just adore the set you traded with me. Fun, fun, fun!

These are wonderful. I'm toying with different ways of mounting mine, too.

All these 'inchies ' just look wonderful together , Debbi, I'd be really interested to know the way you construct them, because I find it really dificult to make room for the satin stitch edging on a PC and frequently break my beads by sewing them on too close.
When you have so many , do you do the different stages all at once or complete each 'inchie' indivdually?

Don't they look wonderful all together in one unit?! The beauty of each is just magnified.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my inchie. I'm pretty new to them so the encouragement was wonderful.
