Feathers are always a classic design and look great on every quilt. Here, they stand alone with a little crosshatching.
Today is Work in Progress Wednesday and I am reviving an old project. This project was derived from an art book study in value.
They say, “Value does all the work and color gets all the credit.”
It was a perfect project for my hand dyed fabrics. The reason I abandoned the project was that I fused the pieces with regular Wonder Under. Because there are so many layers in some areas, the squares are as stiff as cardboard and resistant to free motion quilting.
I still have the pattern I designed, so I’d like to try this again. Should I fuse it again with a light weight fusible? Should I appliqué it-by hand or by machine? What will I do with it once it’s finished? These are the design decisions that went unanswered before and landed this project in a bin in the basement. Can I resuscitate it this time? What would YOU do?
Maybe I’ll just go make a pie…
