The Bungle Bungles Series Continues

first seam of a new project

After all the fabric auditioning, consideration of scale of the units for this piece, there was a satisfying moment doing the first seam of a new project – all keen piecers of fabric know that feeling!    And, even though I was certain that the block/gold pin spot fabric will  be an important part of this particular quilt,  to test that theory I took the time to consider another option –

choices to be made

 

– and now think for this work I must make a choice.  It’s either the horizontal lines will all be black/gold spot, or the rock units will be striped with other rock unit fabric.   And while I’m considering that,  I’ll have a spot of lunch and a total change of activity, outside, as it’s a beautiful day.

 

I’ve just bought a new gold paint for the hand made dots I plan to put on the work I’m just finishing.  Samples are so important – so I tested it of course on a scrap of the background fabric – set with the iron, and it is really permanent.  I also bought a couple of cheap paint brushes and cut the ends off to use to make round dots….. and I especially like the fine ones on the RHS.    Fiddling with samples always suggests more than one idea, and I like the gold brush strokes against the black – there’s some real potential there….
