Work in Progress
Since I needed something to cover up, I dug around my UFO pile and found this project.
It was started in response to our quilting guild's 2007 President's Challenge which entailed picking three colouring crayons from a bag. The three colours chosen had to be used in a small quilt and one more colour could be added.
My colours were brown, green and orange – totally NOT my colours, I added yellow (gold) as my fourth colour.
This is as far as I got before deciding that this was pretty ugly and I didn't know where to go with it.
Instead I made “Birdhouse”. I blogged about it here.
When I put it away I stuck the left-over fabric in the bag along with the project.

I fused some Heat n Bond to the back of the gold and green and cut into 1/2” strips.
My idea of fusing a grid over the whole thing seemed like an easy execution. Keeping everything straight and weaving over and under in the right places proved different. I had to take out several rows. I gently heated the strips with my iron and was able to pull them up and fuse them back down. I don't know if this would work with any fusible web but it work fine with this one.

I added some batting and a back and quilted along both edges of the strips.
WAIT! I'M NOT DONE. I have an idea for more covering up. I hope it works!

ART PROMPT - #16 – cover up something
HERE'S MY “ART PROMPT” PLAN
One prompt, one project (taking as long as required to finish the project)
It's OK to finish or use a previously started project (UFO) as a starting point.
Make something creative.
Use any Media.
Blog about the project.
Pick another prompt once the project is done.
