I decided I would try something new to me. Freezer paper appliqué was it. I had an idea for raindrops on a purple background. I looked at all the freezer paper appliqué tutorials on Google. I did the double freezer paper and starch method. It was not as easy to go around the curves as I thought. Hmm. Room for practice. Points were also an issue especially when I when to slip stitch the raindrops onto my quilt.
I got as far as getting most of the raindrops sewn onto my background. I am going to have to come up with some awesome quilting to make this quilt come to life. I did an on-line trip to Sew Modern and ordered some perle cotton. Hope it is going to work for me. I also have some metallic and variegated thread from Superior to work with. It was a cloudy day today so the color is not so great. I have to have it finished by next weekend so I need to be a speedy quilter when I get back into town.
The fabric I used is mostly from my basics fat quarter bundle from Pink Castle. I also had some ombre fabric, some Melody Miller linen and some custom fabric ordered from Vickie Welsh. I sent her the Radiant Orchid sample I got from Amazon. She has an etsy shop. The radiant orchid raindrops that I made from her fabric are my inspiration.
