This is the applique project that I haven’t been working on (see my previous post titled “OPPOSITES”).
I’m going with the “MORE IS MORE” theory of applique. It’s all fusible web, and everything’s just sitting there, whcih gets kind of interesting when the dog decides to walk in the door and check out what’s going on.
I have the term “millefiori” in my head, though I don’t think I’ll actually end up with a thousand flowers by the time I’m done.
I haven’t entirely figured out how I’m going to get from here on the floor (in the middle of the doorway) to having everything ironed on. I’m kinda crazy that way.
I do miss my design wall. I need one at home again, but there aren’t enough hours in the day.
I pieced the top a year or more ago, if I could find the original post I’d link to itbut since I’m NOT getting a cold…well, you get the picture. Originally I was going to hand applique…soemthing…don’t remember what exactly. It was going to be all pinks and lime greens, but a few months ago I pulled htis out and threw some oranges and teals on the pile of fabrics.
Last night I pulled some MORE orange, and yellow and pink and green and started fusing. Nearly everything’s been cut out freehand, I’ve drawn a few things, but I’m just making it all up as I go along.
It might end up looking like somebody puked a rainbow on it, but maybe not.
