|New Idea for My Bear Paw Blocks|
Meanwhile, I finished appliqueing the tulips that look like duck tracks to my needle turn applique block:
|Almost Finished, Just Needs Some Berries|
Now all it needs is a smattering of stuffed berries that I haven't made yet. My husband keeps asking me if this block is destined to be a pillow. He usually asks me this while he is chucking other pillows onto the floor so he can sprawl on the couch. The applique block will NOT turn into a pillow; it needs to grow into a throw sized quilt, but I have no idea what that quilt will look like. Should I make a bunch more blocks just like this one? Should I make a bunch more applique blocks in different patterns, but with the same fabrics, like a sampler quilt? Should I make a mixture of different pieced and applique blocks in different sizes? Once I get the berries done, I think I'll need to play with the block in the EQ7 software to explore some of those ideas.
This is what comes of starting off on projects with only a half-baked idea of where you're headed with it. Not that that's a bad thing -- but it does present challenges!
