This UFO has been hanging over my curtain rob for over a year. I started it in 2010 and was really excited about it. Then I lost interest. I got bored with all the appliqué (I'm surprised to hear me say that too). Maybe it is because they were all the same blocks?
Whatever it was, I hung it up and used it as a curtain. I know, so disrespectful.
Well I've finally found some inspiration and decided to move forward.
Part of that was making the decision to do my own thing, making it up as I go.
So to start, I pulled out this really crazy ruler that my Grandmother gave me. I don't know how to use, but I'm making use of it.
We don't need fancy tools! Make it up as you go. That'll be my new motto. Of course if it doesn't work, ignore me.
After I drew some lines, I cut up a pile of basis stripes and pinned them down. Now the fun part, appliqué!
When I've finish, I'll show you another pic. Hopefully I'll discover a wonderful new technique using that strange ruler.
Take care, Brandie
