Textured Fabric - make your own

I thought it would be nice to show some textured fabric that I made some time ago.  It was a piece of fabric that I did not particularly like and decided to change it.  So I put it on the sewing machine and put the pedal to the metal going back and forth with a couple of different color threads.  In doing so the fabric itself has become somewhat of a back ground and the texture is the design part.

To accomplish this all you need to do is pick out one of the decorative stitches on your sewing machine, a thread that appeals to you in colors you like, a piece of fabric, a good, if not new, needle in your machine.  Set your stitches close and start stitching.

Click on the picture above to get a close up view.  Have fun with this - there are NO mistakes.

Just a reminder for those of you who are doing the Rhode Island quilt challenge, there is just over a month before the deadline.  See previous posts.
