I've been busy busy getting scarves dyed (more on those later) and getting wall hangings ready for the North Carolina Quilt Symposium in Fayetville, North Carolina May 23 - 26. I made it easy on myself and I only had to create one from scratch, the other two were projects I had done previously.
I started to doodle...
.........and I came up with a sketch.
I decided to use a technique I learned with Katie Pasquini Masopust http://www.katiepm.com/ when she taught a workshop at Capital Quilt Guild.
Ghost Layers and Color Washes.
I decided to just look at the value side of things and leave out the Ghost Layers.
Once the glue is dry you can cut your pieces out and you now have a template to cut your pieces out and you can fold them over and get a really nice edge. (well, KMP can, I still need major practice!)
When you get all the pieces matched, then iron it down, small dabs of Elmers Glue works if some spots aren't cooperating. then you take clear thread and sew down every seam.
