Block of the Day 2019 - Skitch a Day
Block of the Day for 2019! A small pictorial applique each day set on a vertical strip. Fused and free-motion stitched, these little "skitches" are fun and quick to do. To add a little more interest we will be using some Inktense pencils by Derwent to add some subtle shading and colour effects.
The Block of the Day 2019 - Skitch a Day - is now finished. However the pattern is still available and would come all at once now, although still in parts.
The quilt was put together in horizontal rows per month, then joined together by row, quilt as you go.
The sample shown is the finished quilt with a small sample as well.
The fabrics used are 2 1/2" wide strips for both the background and applique, the fabrics shown are Hoffman Bali Poppies (packs of 20 x 2 1/2" wide strips), lighter neutrals for the backgrounds and colours for the applique. A grey colour will be used for the joining strips.
