I'm making a little basket of flowers for the Fall quilt. Here's the beginning of what I completed yesterday.
I prepare the flowers one at a time. I use just a drop or two of Roxanne's glue to hold it together then I'll glue it to the basket once all of the flowers and leaves are finished. I'm cutting out the flowers and leaves from the same fat quarter that is screaming the colors of Fall to me.
This is my chicken scratch that I drew yesterday. I draw with the Frixion pens that erase better than pencil. Sometimes when I want to erase a lot.....and I do often, I just iron my drawing away. When I decide on the final drawing, I trace over the whole picture with a permanent marker. Once I left one of my drawings in a hot car.....it vanished in the heat.....so I learned my lesson the hard way.
To make the braided border stand out, I'm going to embroider an outline stitch around each of the little pieces.
I hope all of you have an enjoyable day. I see a picnic lunch and hike in my future.
