Ta-Da! Crazy-quilt pieced flannel plaids, bordered with a baby pink flannel. I didn't think I could get more contrast-y than that.
February's step is to add applique. I'm really not a hand-stitcher, so my applique will be of the fused and machine-stitched variety. I could try and work on a new skill with a different applique technique, but I am feeling a time and project crunch in February, so I will stick to my plan.
|Starting to crazy-quilt piece the reds.|
I purposely saved out my red plaid flannels for the applique. Have a border fabric picked out and cut, and I'm making crazy-quilt patches for the applique shapes. I am feeling so inspired. This is so much fun!
At this point, I'm thinking cat silhouettes will be the shapes I applique. Don't know why--I'm really not much of a cat person. Tried out a couple different arrangements. Ready to get back to piecing the reds...
(I know as I write this that I am putting this project aside for a couple weeks. I have another pressing project that has a February deadline and much work to be done. Stay tuned later in the month.)
