#BraveQuilter in June at Pink Doxies
I'm thinking of this as a brave effort for several reasons.
This is the largest applique I've ever tired. It is in the 21" x 24" range. Am I crazy to think I can keep it flat?
I'm working without a plan for the completed quilt. I usually have a vague idea what I imagine a finished quilt might look like, but not this time. This is part of the Gwen-Inspired Medallion Quilt Along at Humble Quilts. We'll be told the "theme" for each new border at the beginning of each month. We can choose how we interpret the theme, colors, etc., but still, there's no plan. Ahh, I'm shaking in my shoes over this one.
And the borders! I struggle with borders. I just added three borders to a quilt and barely succeeded in keeping them flat, and only one was pieced. How will I manage borders on this quilt? (There will be four!)
I'm feeling just a little trepidation as I continue appliqueing this basket and flower block. I'll report back at the end of the month.
I'm linking this post to #Brave Quilter June Linky at Pink Doxies. Thanks for creating and hosting this challenge, Julie.
