On Sunday, I allowed myself the morning to machine quilt on the DDD project, swearing to put that aside & devote the whole afternoon to my Wicked project.
I did well - I drew a full size (20"x 20" sketch), hung it up on the sliding glass door & hated it!
More accurately, I started to second guess myself. Big Time. I went so far as to bring the laptop down to the studio & started to surf the web, looking for a new design inspiration. With time flying by, I stopped that nonsense and moved forward - the wicked and wonderful boot idea was my first design concept & I needed to stick with it and make it happen.
Color was easy - I had 3 shades of Wicked green plus black. Only other Cherrywood fabric in other colors is allowed as long as combined they can't exceed 40% of the top. The four Wicked colors must make up 60% or more of the top.
I chose purple shades as my other color, with a touch of sand.
The base of the top - lots of fiddly bits, detail work and some embellishment to go, not to mention machine quilting.
And there's another project that saw some finishing work this past weekend that I will share tomorrow! Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek at this project.
