Ideas Into Form #4

We left off with the flower fabrics chosen but nothing cut out.
I used the fabrics and the design as planned. Once I cut out all the flower pieces I auditioned leaf and stem fabrics the same way, by laying them out with the flowers.
After a lot of tracing, cutting and fusing it all came together.
floral runnerI plan to add some greenery between the flowers to fill in some of the open spots, but not until everything else is appliqued.
For now I need to set it aside and work on a few other things. It took a lot longer than I anticipated to get the top fused, and life got in the way.
I also learned that I need to start sewing projects a season or two ahead of time so that I can actually use them when they are finished. By the time I get the runner done it will be about autumn.
