Applique Project



So, with the gentle encouragement of a good friend, Diane Steele of the Rabid Quilter blog, of I am going to take on a block of the month applique project. I first needed to find the project, which I located at One Piece at a Time and it is called My Tweets. Birds and flowers sound like fun! Now to pick fabric. My goal, as usual, is to use what I already have so I started early this morning sifting through bins of fabric.



Do I go with regular fabric or batiks? How much will I need? Half a yard or So can I get away with fat quarters?? So many choices but no real focus fabric. I may have to work on finding my focus fabric first and then pull the rest of the fabric. Tonight will be fun as I pull groups of fabric and see what works.




Here is my bin to sort through with all the fabric I have purchased at the last couple of quilt shows I attended. I have plenty of greens but need yellows, blues, pinks and purples if I want the colors but I could go with the red and black fabric, using gray for my contrast. This is so much fun!! I hope I only have to purchase my background fabric.


Once I figure out my fabric I will be getting a quick lesson on how to applique without having the entire project fall apart on you! This looks to be a great hand project that I can take along to work for lunch or do on the weekends if I take the kids to the pool or venture out to the park! I hope to have an update on fabric choices in the next couple of days.
