I'm really having alot of fun with it!
All of the scallops have been basted and are all ready to applique. First, I stitched a green stop border around the outside of the blocks.
I layed the quilt out on my livingroom floor after I prepared the borders to "audition" the design and my fabric choices just to make sure that I LOVE it before I proceed.
I am going to stitch butter yellow ric-rac tucked into the binding, so I also audition the ric-rac and binding fabric at the same time.
The corners will be appliqued last, after all of the borders have been appliqued and stitched to the quilt to ensure that they line up correctly to the scallops on each side of them.
I always leave the freezer paper on until I'm ready to applique to keep the marked piece flat and to keep the shape from distorting.
I like to audition all of my quilts there on the floor so that I can see them from a different perspective. It really helps!
After all of the scallops are appliqued, I will be adding even more applique on TOP of the scallops, using all of the colors that have been used in the quilt.
I will show you that a little later.....
