Beginning The Construction
Here is how it looks in its full view.
Then I sketched the ducks on tissue. For those who are new to my blog, I do that so I can lay the sketch on both the quilt background to be sure of proportion and placement and also I use it as a guide when constructing the object on my teflon sheet .
I always make my building some what perfectly in the sketch but when I construct it out of fabric I free cut it so it is just a bit off making it not only look more real but to add some movement and interest to the structure.
Here they both are pinned on the background and I am happy with the size of them as well as how nicely they fit the space. The ducks will be moved apart a big but you can still see they will work out well in the foreground, giving the piece the depth it needs.
So the part I enjoy the most is beginning...stay tuned for changes to keep coming each day. Well hopefully each day....it is the weekend so may get distracted with a few other things.
