Having decided if you are doing to do an 'evertything' or specific colors top, lets sew! This first row contains: 1 Halloween 9 patch, a Mile-A-Minute block, and where the little blue and white HST is, those are scraps from San, each about 2.5". Beyond them a couple more MAM blocks. The row is about 26" right now.
And this guy, part of a pre-printed childs dress. I added strips and he will go into a quilt that in of "his colors", bright oranges, limes and turquoise. That pile grows slowly...LOL
These are for a different orphan quilt. The rows have a l2" 9 patch, bright but LARGE,sections of Pioneer braid(a good way to use a disaster) a couple of sections of RailRoad Crossing,left over 6" 9 patches, and string blocks. I measure and pin a scrap to the section. Easier than re-measuring.
Last but not least, these rows are for a top that I've chosen to piece in vertical rows. I pointed the puppy faces that way on purpose. If you look at the left hand section, I sewed some HST pieces together horizontally and added them between blocks. It's a nice fill in. You probably are wondering if I be sewing these TWO sections to each other?? I don't know. I'm NOT leaning that way, but it's possible. I might want something bigger and blockier next to that first vertical row.
Remember...there is NO right or wrong way to do this *VBS* More tomorrow!
Phebe - I love applique!
