Design Wall Monday 10-26

Design wall Monday 4 001

It's been a busy week here but I haven't spent as much time in my studio as I would have liked.  I have the first block mostly done... there are still berries and a bird to go on before I call it finished.  This machine applique moves along very quickly!   

The other main blocks are now pieced.  I still need to make the sashing blocks that separate these - they are cut so I'll finish those this week.  I think my plan of attack will be to get all the vines attached.  Then I'll spend some quality time with my marker and light box drawing off the pieces for all the blocks.  Then I can play with picking fabric for the other flowers and leaves.

I have done some more hand applique on the Peas in a Pod but they are only partials and are still sitting next to the couch - they haven't migrated back up to the studio yet.

So what's on your design wall?

What a pretty appliqued block! The pieced background adds so much.

I think anyone who does applique (with any method) deserves a gold star! what's on my design wall--less than last week. I have some blocks into flimsies needing borders! Woohoo!
