As I worked on my World Series quilt, I got to thinking about the other seven quilters who are part of this challenge. They would be: Hollis Chatelain, John Flynn, Sue Nickels, Caryl Bryer Fallert, Judy Mathieson, Mary Sorenson, and Ricky Tims. I had to stop and take a deep breath!
I decided that the drawing I started with was a bit light on the applique. I made a new sketch…
Do any of you read Pam Holland's blog? Pam can draw and her sketches make me smile. They also make me feel like a slacker. I should fess up and say that I can draw – I just don't take the time to do it. If you don't make the time, your drawings look like this one of mine above. That said, my lousy sketch works for me because I know where I'm going with it. There will be lots more flowers!
Notice that the center has changed. I want it to appear to be more of a void. I'm reverse appliqueing the square-ish shapes to give it some depth.
