I have begun work on my 7th 12x12 quilt. This one is called "Radishes". So I began by drawing out the radishes and where I wanted the shadows and laying them out. I used the sketch from a few days ago as a guide.
I could see the white root end was too heavy and I would have to do the end of those with thread only. so I cut them off at he tops.
This is much better. Now to start adding leaves. I am happy with the leaves as is and began the quilting on them. I can always add more if I feel there is a need later. Oh the magic of fusing.
Here are a few leaves quilted. Had to stop and go to the electrocardiologist with my hubby for a checkup. He is doing great!
All of this came from one night of sketching. There is value in sketching and I have made myself a promise to try to sketch every night when at all possible.
