Did you gather some baby theme fabric? Do you have some ideas to work with? I hope so.
I don't know about you, but I love making things for babies or inspired by babies so this challenge is bound to be fun, although I'm starting off a little tough because I don't have a lot of 'baby' inspired fabric to work with. I hunted in my stash and only came up with about four suitable fabrics.
I've been spending a little extra time with my grandbabies now that I'm living closer to them so this month's challenge I decided would be "baby" themed. The idea is to come up with as many ideas as you can that may be associated with "baby".
It's time to finish up my project and make sure I used all the words in this challenge. I already had all my words included except for two “french knot” and “ripple”.
I don't know about you, but this challenge has me doing some techniques I haven't done in a long time. It is always nice to revisit them. I'm referring to hand applique. I have always enjoyed it, just never had enough time to do a lot of it. I do like how the pieces pop up compares to fusible applique.
This part was all about constructing the applique. I needed to add my bridge and also a small boat or yacht in the water.
How are you coming along with your challenge piece? The instructions for this week are coming up next, but check out how Emma is getting along first! She has created an amazing background with lots of details as you can see in this photo. She's enjoying filling out her journal pages also, it makes for an interesting read!
Those 2½" squares I'd found in my stash were perfect to get started with this challenge. I pulled the darkest out and starting at the top, lay out five columns and worked downward. I figured that once pieced that would make a top of 10" wide and if I went down 6 squares my piece will end up 10" x 12". Seems like a good size.
Are you ready for Part 2 of this challenge? I know I am! I'm really eager to get back into some quilting. Let's get started...
I'm so excited to get back to my Stitch Alongs and thinking quilting, although I still had a little trouble filling in my full grid, but only on repeated letters so that's not too bad. Here's how my grid looks:
