Here are the two sewn sections creating a curve... nice!
Fun to play with on my tiny temporary design wall.
As to the watercolor...
Funny how you can place all the squares on the design wall, then it looks different sewn
Here it is with the bottom half rows sewn to each other
Back to the discussion...
At first I started ironing all seams open this time. I usually press them in one direction across a row, then the other direction for the next row, so they'll nest when stitching the rows. This time I thought I'd try opening.
Well opening the quarter inch seams took a long time. Then I wondered if they would lay flat after stitching and pressing, so I went back to pressing to the side. I'll see which method lays flatter.
I decided aspen trunks won't show up on this light center. The little squares I was given are nearly all lights, and my goal was to use only what I was given. So....
Now I think I'll use a brown scrap to do some branches, not a trunk, and stencil birds on the branches.
A quilt evolves.
