Well, I'm doing it. I started working on an art quilt! This will be my first piece based on one of my doodles from a few years ago, which is something I've wanted to do for quite a while and I'm really excited to finally be giving it a try!
After sketching out the design on a white piece of fabric with a marker. I started laying down the colored fabric and cutting out the shapes. The sketch will all be covered so the scribbles won't matter, and it also won't matter if I don't follow the lines exactly.
The shapes are being cut oversized to leave room for overlap. I am not using any fusible web and am turning under edges to be stitched down. The flower will be dimensional (satin perhaps?) and details will be added with ribbon, quilting, embroidery and beading. I will post the finished result no matter how it turns out - stay tuned!
