Stitch Along March rules part 3
I've had a lot of response from my last stitch along post especially when I posted it on Facebook. Many mentioned "one fish, two fish" from the Dr Suess book and I discovered it was actually Dr Suess month this month, how cool is that? So as a result, I'll probably make more than one block with varying amounts of Nemos.
If you haven't taken a moment to check the Gallery this week, be sure to as it has been updated again.
Rules for March Week 3
Step 1: Commit to something perpendicular to your background strips, but it should not be last week's applique, that would make it just too easy. Add something more. An example might be a row or string of beads...
an additional fabric strip....
or even a fabric strip woven through some of the background strips.
You might also decide something as simple as stitching or couching.
Make a decision and if you need to add it before you press your applique in place, do so.
Step 2: Keeping your step 1 selection/decision in mind, rearrange your applique if necessary and then press it in place.
Step 3: Stitch the strips in place using any stitching you like, it may be blanket stitch, straight stitch, free-motion or a decorative stitch. Whatever pleases you. You should be stitching through all layers. Also attach your appliques by stitching around the edges.
That should keep you busy for a little while. If I'm making extra blocks, it's going to take me a good while :)
