Summer Play

While working in our yard a few Junes ago, I daydreamed quilting ideas. So many things I had seen at market were fused on, rather than pieced. I decided I wanted to join the fun.
One rainy day was a perfect time to start. First I fused some squares of batik. I cut them into curved 1/2" strips using the Cut A Round tool. Then I arranged them on several larger background squares and fused them into place. This is what my first squares looked like:
I had thought I would continue making a total of 9 blocks, alternating between the greenish backgrounds and the purplish backgrounds. Nah...didn't like that after making four squares.
So I cut the two purple squares into fourths and added a ninth smaller piece:Next I added lattice pieces between the squares and surface stitched all sorts of lines using decorative stitches on my new sewing machine.
 I studied the left over green squares and found I liked them the best. So I made a couple more to sew together into a tablerunner or long wallhanging.
If you would like to have instructions on how I made my squiggly slivers, go to my website freebie pattern page. The download is found there.
Next project I'm planning is a Yucca plant using the slices you see here and there in these pieces!
Until then,
Happy Quilting,
Cheryl
