Joining Quilt As You Go Panels

progress contines as the 4 panels are ready to join.
This is new territory for me although
after seeking "how to" from the Web and
other quilters I think I can do it.

"No Hiding" Oak Leaf

 With 3 leaves finished,
I'm continuing my "No Hiding"
and plan to create more solid on solid
hand appliqued leaves. 
Yes, this is a challenge for one who
really enjoys using batik fabric.
Oak Leaf - 5 1/2 inches X 11 inches.

" No Where To Hide"

  At our recent Asheville Modern Quilt Guild meeting,
Elizabeth Garlington stated that she felt when using solid fabrics
that there was "no where to hide".  
I've pondered that quite a bit since I mainly use batik fabrics.
Now as I quilt this Wall Art piece that is primarily gray fabric,
I am understanding her thoughts better.

Green Leaves Hand Applique

 Since I've had an idea to create another  improvisational  leaf
art piece, similar but not the same as the one I created in February, 
Since my dear friend Eydie gifted me
a generous bag of various solid colored green remnants, 
Since I am really wanting to start another
hand project,
I've begun hand appliqueing free hand cut 
3 leaves and hand appliqueing them to a
contrasting fabric. 32 inches X 5 inches.

Modern Quilt Direction

I've chosen to go with a Modern Quilt design using
some dark grey fabric.  Squaring off 4 of  my Scrap Vortex QALBlocks
using  my 12 1/2 inch square ruler made them easier to use.
I'm thinking this may be a series as I'm already planning other projects with
the many other Scrap Vortex blocks I've created.

Trimming Scrap Vortex Pairs

 OK - I've emptied one bin of batik remnants
creating pairs that are similar in size.
Time to "square" them to create more blocks.
Still not sure what to do with all the blocks
although I've purchased a dark grey fabric
to use for 4 of them .
