A Little Progress
Okay, so maybe I went to a quilt store and picked up a bunch of new batiks and thread for my as-of-yet-untitled art quilt and maybe I started cutting out pieces of those fabrics and arranging them on my quilt wall.
Nothing is sewn down yet, the pieces are just clinging to the fabric. The non-existent branches for some of those leaves will eventually be sewn in with thread. And I think that darker blue sky swish in the upper left corner will probably get edited out because I think it is a little too blue.
I think my next step will be to cut out the pieces for my little stone wall and then I might start spray basting some of those pieces down. I think I'll stitch some of the bigger pieces down straight onto the fabric and then put on a border, put the layers together, and then do a bunch of quilting over the top, including stitching down the leaves and eventual birds and stuff. But don't hold me to any of that because I am totally winging it.
