So here is what I have come up with for my next quilt. I have never really "planned" a project before, and I already worry that I am over thinking it!! It will be pieced in blocks, but then assembled and embellished as a whole cloth. The blocks will be approx 15", so you can see that the pieces will be BIG, but I want lots of scope for multi layered seam treatments. I will add beads etc this time, not many, but any self respecting CQ needs a bit of sparkle, don't you think.
I want to piece tatting in here some how. Where??
It will be a monotone palette again (denim look - chambray and handdyed blues). Should I piece anywhere, anyhow, randomly, and rely on the seam treatments to maintain the integrity of the design, or should I try and use the shades of the fabric to help with that. I am thinking of those 4 main "voids" in the "+" shape. So for example I would use one fabric for each of the corners from the 4 blocks that make up those "voids" (ha-did that make any sense?)
Because I peice onto fusible interfacing, I can't add tatting later...maybe this isn't the right piece for adding tatting.
I really like the design. If I piece randomly I am pretty sure that the seams will hold it all together.
Please, I want to hear all your comments and ideas!
