What's on My Design Wall - Wednesday - 4/13/11??
The Ladies are on the wall this Wednesday -
I forgot the BLACK - gotta have the black!
I want to cut out the two "two ladies" at the top and the "single lady" at the bottom for focus blocks in a fre-form sort of thing.
But you can see that if I do a straight cut - there is only 1/2 inch between the edges of the two sets.
That will be cutting it way too close (pun intended).
I want some background around them.
I don't want them bumping right up to the edge of the "block".
So I thought about - and thought about it. Nothing came to mind.
Funny how stuff comes to you in dreams, though, huh?
Well - naps are good for that - dreams - and puzzle solving.
I dreamt that I could cut the two "two ladies" out as large as possible -
And then back the one "single lady" with fusible - cut her out - and then applique her to a similar background. That might work.
So - these are my choices for background. I'm kinda partial to the first (yellow) one on the right.
or maybe the second (peachy) one next to it -
Then I saw the partial "single" ladies on the left and right edges - down toward the bottom.
WHAT IF - I fuse them, too - cut them out - and try to layer them to see if I can get another "single lady" block? Don't know yet if it will work - but I'm going to try it - stay tuned.
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
