Sometimes designing goes smoothly, but most often there is a spot that just gets hard. Either hard to actually put together or hard to decide on the right approach. Today’s bit of indecision involves choosing fabric.
I started a project using some previously pieced strips. The white fabric rays were pieced in, though I’m sure it would have been easier to fuse or applique them on top. I just did not want my strips to remain straight and even and I knew that improv piecing would skew them for me. I like that part.
So here’s the dilemna–I want a strip of fabric down the left hand side. The outside edge will be straight and the connecting edge will be improv pieced. I did try the fabrics that are in the strips, but nothing really spoke to me at all from that group. Now I’m working with stripey fabrics ’cause they seem to work with the overall picture. Take a look at my choices so far…
