This week I will attempt to make progress on this old UFO
handed down to me.
The 16 dresden plates were sewn together...
but had not been appliqued.
I have finished six and today I was able to play around with CIRCLES.
What color will I use??
I also did some mock ups with some border strips.
Lots of quilty thinking ahead.
My FAVORITE kind of think to THINK!
I am using 12" background squares.
I fold them in half twice and press.
Then I center the dresden plate
and use a BIG stitch on my machine
to baste it down.
Just two lines.
It's been working just fine.
I am doing needle turn applique all the way around the outside.
I will THEN go back and add the centers
when I decide what color(s) I will choose.
I kind of like the mix of GREEN, BLUE, YELLOW
I have chosen so far!
What are YOU making???
