Hoop Artwork Makes Beautiful Home Decor

I love art, but I never would have thought that the wooden hoops used in quilting would make for such beautiful and inspiring art.  Yesterday I came across a blog named Mommy is Coocoo.  First of all I love the blog name and with such a fun name I knew that I would find some interesting blog posts.  One of my favorite posts on the blog is a tutorial on how to make art using fabric and wooden hoops.  I collect fabric but have not done anything with it for a while.  I used to quilt, but I find that I am involved in so many things now that I have not had time to quilt in years.  I still buy pretty fabric that I love though and now I have a huge collection.  I am definitely going to add some hoop art to my walls.  

Here is the hoop art from Mommy is CooCoo.
Here is the fabric and hoops that Mommy is Coocoo started out with.

 
Here is the process of creating the hoop art.

  


The end result.  Isn't it simply GORGEOUS?

I love looking at the photos of this post. Like you said they are so bright and cheerful. I have displayed fabric in pictures frames before but this looks so much nicer.

Hi Amanda, I loved making your hoop art today's post on my blog. You are so creative. Thank you also for the link because I was clueless about it.

What a great idea. I've been buying those hoops at garage sales but I didn't know why until now! Thank you.

Hi Delana,

If I had known I would have been buying hoops at garage sales too...LOL. Bloggers continue to inspire me in so many ways.
