Another work in progress (WIP) to show today, my take on a Chic Kisses pattern. And check out that JUMBO apple green ric rac!
Having started out with these wedge parts back in June,
the project got set aside, and each day, it would beg for me to work on it. Yes, I want to work on you but I need more background fabric.
My choice for the background was this adorable print, called Sweet Things Cherries by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse Fabrics. I had bought a half yard back in February for another project,
and everyone else must have loved it too, because it was nowhere on the shelves. Thank goodness for internet shopping! Ordered two yards, and obstacle 'a' out of the way.
I had also purchased a yard of the ric rac for that other project, and then thought how awesome it would look on the top of the wedges. Works right in with ric rac stems in the background and gives an extra punch!
Ah, but the ric rac was harder to find. At first I thought I would use 30 yards. Yes, you read that right--30! That's a huge amount, and expensive. So I scaled back the project and now it only uses 15. And fortunately, I found it at PIQF this past weekend. Woohoo! Now all obstacles are removed, and the project proceeds!
So, this is where it's at right now.
with more ric rac and setting triangles to apply. So happy to be working on this again! And it's for me--lovin' those cherries and pink/green combo!
Have a wonderful day quilting!
