|Fussy cutting fabrics in the tiniest of pieces
I have my little brown flower baskets out for additional fussy cutting. The hexagons for the same project are also out.
I love looking at the print details to 'find' the right little piece I want.
So much fun in a half inch scrap of fabric!
|Grouping of hexagons - some fussy cut
I placed all the hexagons (1/2" paper pieces) out to see what I have so far....they may not all make it into this project.
They have been a great take along for travel....and I seem to have a fair bit of that coming up.
I have the hexagons and applique supplies in my travel basket along with a good book. I can pick it up in a moments notice and keep busy.
|My interpretation of the baskets
These are my baskets (to date) - some are still missing details with audition pieces pinned in place. There will be 22 baskets in all.
There are also small 6 pointed stars in this quilt. I plan to fussy cut and paper piece them as well.
I am really enjoying the medium background. It is a nice opportunity to use some lighter fabrics in the applique.
UPDATE: This was not a purchased pattern - I made drawings and am stitching off them as patterns - after seeing the original.
Have a fabulous weekend!!
