My design wall is not up yet in my newly rearranged sewing area, so it is a design table this week. Late last night I pulled out the Cocoa Baskets project box and what was left of the Steam A Seam fusible package and got to tracing baskets.
I like the Steam A Seam because until it is ironed down, it is repositionable. (Note the nice big scrap I saved myself by lining up the applique on the far edge!) Although the package directions state it is not required with this fusible, I'll zig zag the edges of the appliques with invisible thread.
Six yummy baskets ready for stitching. Laying out all the completed-so-far 9 patch, churn dash and basket blocks will help me determine what colors/fabrics can be repeated in the setting I chose. I do have some other backgrounds to cut from and am really liking the striped ones. See more design walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
