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.
