I have more images to hopefully help you along on your Awesome Appliqué Strip journey…
I thought I’d taken this pic of all the appliqué shapes I’d made but didn’t find it for yesterday’s post. Sorry!
As I was designing & making this quilt (like all of my quilts) I design/sew/assess as I go. Sometimes the quilt is finished just as I originally designed it & sometimes it morphs a bit or a lot!
This quilt just had minor fabric color changes, but mostly for photographing purposes.
I love this part!
Many times as I’m working I change things only to revert back to my original design… like the “B”!
The “B” was originally black but at some point I imagined it would read better if light like the “OO”.
It just didn’t pop on the grey appliqué background.
Even though I had to make another “B” I decided it needed to be black (just like my original design).
That helped me to move forward on the appliqué strip once I’d fixed that problem.
You have no idea just how many hours I spend getting a design “just right” do you? I’m sure you don’t because I can’t even calculate them now that the quilt is complete!
Finally it was ready to fuse, glue
And stitch some more…
Now it’s perfect!
