Had a chance to work on my quilt the last pas few days and I've gotten three of the appliqued vegetables painted , cut out and fused to its back ground fabric. Once I get all of them finished I will piece together the separate vegetable block segments and stitch it to the center design on the quilt.
I found this piece of fabric above that I think will be perfect for the large trees in the fore ground of the quilt.
Here are my three of the finished appliqued vegetable blocks. They are finished being painted , cut out , and fused to the muslin backing fabric.
I'm going to be adding, hand or machine, stitching to each of the vegetables and I may be adding a few more leave and or flowers also.
Next I fuse everything in place and put the finished blocks in a small storage bag.
When I'm making a quilt a keep a photo record of each step I do. If I need to check on anything I've done.
While I'm doing this quilt I will post pictures of the steps I've taken.
I start my quilts with a black line drawing and then I start transferring my drawing by placing some clear cellophane wrapping paper over the top of the drawing. as I'm working on the quilt I draw in the part of the quilt I want to make a pattern for and then I find or make the fabric I need. I will do this for the entire center of the quilt . Using this method helps me keep organized.
I cut a piece of twine and attach it to the top left side of the quilt and I use this twine to find the line of light for the time of day I've chosen For this quilt the light will be coming from the top left and the
time of day is early morning.
