Just a quick peak at the center section. What I draw and what actually makes it to the final design is a dynamic work in progress. I doubt that this center section will be completed by Sunday for the Preview Party. I have to stop changing my mind!
I've been experimenting by cutting petals out of the individual flowers in the fabric. The left-hand look good, but I lost my way after that.
I told you there would be a blue flange around the oval. Luckily for me, I had this white and blue paisley in my stash that matched the rest of the fabric in the Blueberry Crumb Cake line. The center oval is a great polka dot from Lakehouse. I had just a fat quarter of this, so accurate cutting was essential when I cut out the oval. Then there was the issue of finding a spool of absolute white thread in my cabin sewing supplies for the top stitching. Do I drive 45 minutes one-way to the nearest quilt shop, or do I use an off-white that may work? I ended up using what I had and was pleased with the off-white. No one will notice unless you readers squeal and spill the beans!
I've been making and moving flowers around for a day. The only component that I know is going to remain is my signature flange. Decisions, decisions........
