The speciality stitches are almost complete so I've been playing with some bull's eye blocks from another project to just get an idea of how I would like to layout circles before cutting into more batik fabrics.
After marking the arrangement of these fused squares with masking tape, decorative stitches were begun to add more color. But, since it's distorting some of the squares, I decided to fuse the arrangement to the batting before completing the decorative stitching.
When preparing to travel without my sewing machine recently, I cut 6 x 6 inch squares of Wonder Under fusible web, gathered the thin batik strip remnants from Cindy's recent project and placed it in a plastic bag. I knew an iron would be available when I arrived. However, since we were so busy during the visit, I'm just now getting to this project now that I'm home.
Being able to personally deliver this anniversary Quilted Art to my daughter and her hubby of 2 years tomorrow was wonderful. Hearing their thrill of it and seeing it hanging on their wall was even better. We also spent some time creating colorful pillows to liven up their living space. Thanks for a great time Melanie and Jose'.
