This is my practice piece, which I really like, and may have to figure out something to do with it.
This month, I really struggled trying to find one that would work. I have ideas for starting lots of new projects using the above, but the plan is to finished something already started.
So I picked a project that I thought would never see the light of day again, ever. I made this at least 20 years ago, I'm guessing, but I think that would be close. I wanted to learn to hand applique and purchased a book that had this project in it. It is not my style at all and I soon learned that hand applique wasn't either. A lot of the applique was completed on the machine using the invisible hem stitch.
I have been reading Melanie Testa's book in which she draws an outline and then places a grid behind it. Each square in the grid is quilted using a different design, leaving her outline not quilted. In my mind, it it a somewhat divide and conquer type of thing, similar to Cindy's technique, only not so free flowing.
I thought this would be a better option for this quilt and there are already a lot of curves in this quilt. I have part of it quilted. This is what I have so far.
|Out on a Limb|
I think I will call this quilt "Out on a Limb". I will do a post when it get finished.
I really enjoyed doing this kind of doodling technique, thank you Cindy Needham for the great tutorial.
