Something New with Lots of Blue

   In our house, we are always ready for a new project; a new challenge. Today we got one! Fabric covered in pretty jungle scenes, blue watermark, and bright green are in the line up for a pretty baby quilt. The challenge? Coming  up with the blue monogram/applique lettering in the child's name. 

We had so much fun sitting at the table with pencil and paper sketching, planning, note taking over ideas. I love hearing other people's creative visions and bouncing ideas around the table; so exciting! Today the fabric will be prewashed and dried while I scan and sketch some block lettering. Then- let the cutting begin!

That jungle print is adorable! I can't wait to see your finished project.

I've never appliqued before, but I have to learn soon for a project I'm tackling. I'd love to hear any tips you have when you're done!

Thank you, Sophia. Are you planning hand applique or machine?
