On The Wall
There is finally something on my design wall that I am really working on. I ordered this panel from The Fat Quarter Shop. It is the perfect compliment to my swap blocks, don’t you think? It comes with an unusual measurement (31.5 x 42) so I will get to play with the math to figure out the setting blocks. I think I will have to “shop” for a good fabric for them. I think white with just a little, very little, print. Of course I will have to find just what I am thinking of: I love shopping for something I’ve never seen.
I fused my 8th Funky Chicken this weekend.
A couple of people have asked how I do my applique so I am showing a little of what I do. For the larger pieces I “window” the fusible. I cut the center out, leaving only about 1/4” of the fusible and then fuse it onto the fabric. This leaves the applique more supple.
I don’t bother to window the smaller pieces and it doesn’t seem to matter.
On Saturday DH and I went to Auburn, AL for the first home game of the season. It ‘s a good thing that orange is my favorite color, it was everywhere.
And of course I love my eagle shirt: I love it.
We even came home with a new toy.
Now, just for fun, does anyone know what this is?
There is no prize for this. I started playing with this late Sunday afternoon and it is truly going to be a work in process.
So while I play, hop on over to Patchwork Times so see what others are playing with.
