It's a good thing I didn't opt in for the Great August Fabric Depression. My stash was woefully lacking in lights. It is still pretty lean on that side of the value spectrum but these will help.
I found this stuff and am going to use it on the RR Quilt mentioned in a previous post. Has anyone used this? What were your experiences with it? Opinions?
And now ... The quilt top pictured below is large: 102" x 102" The 9-patch sashing is 9" and the star blocks are 18". It is so big it doesn't fit my design wall (which is floor to ceiling). It started as a value study and got out of hand! It has a wonderful WOW! factor from across the room but when you get up close that WOW! factor gets lost. I am thinking of appliqueing a silhouette of a couple onto this. I know there is a woman who actually does her applique after the piece is quilted and I have actually seen one of her quilts done this way. It was a medallion that was crosshatch quilted and then flowers were appliqued onto it. Now, my applique is quite a bit larger than a flower. Do you think it would work -- appliqueing a silhouette onto this after it is quilted? Lemmeno, would you:?
