My last bench quilt was ok but it didn't have enough contrast between the bench and background for my taste. With the owl you at least have a focal point but the bench was meant to be "the star"
So this time I made the bench first, fusing it together on parchment paper. Did you know parchment paper works just as well as the appliqué pressing sheets they sell? Save your money and buy fabric with it.
Sorry this is sideways but you get the drift.
Then found in my stash something for the background. I tried to keep it simple and believe me simple is hard for me but I like how this came out..
Speaking of sailboats, I saw the first one of the season today on my walk at red rocks park on Lake Champlain - dare I say it? Summer is here!
And yes, this may be a quilt soon
Aaaah, so many quilts, so little time :-)
