I worked yesterday and today on the Tea Towel Challenge quilt.
Tea Towel "Tess" had been patiently waiting. Looks like she's got that part down (the waiting thing).
I had sketched out a rough idea for a design, including drunkard's path blocks, mirroring the curved elements of the central piece, the tendrils of hair, etc.
I string pieced fabric strips onto phone book pages, using warm colors to bring out the red-orange of the tartan.
The wall hanging kit I found at Goodwill a while back had the perfect mix of fabrics to use in this project, rounded out by some men's plaid shirt fabrics and other scraps as well.
And this is how it stands so far:
I have to let it sit a bit, while I consider the next "round." I was intending to go two deep with the DP blocks. I have some beautiful purples I'd like to use.
