Challenge: going outside of set comfort zone. Typically, my quilts are squares or circles. Friend asked me to make a custom quilt with his fraternity letters and colors. I saw heat bond in my future and applique.
The colors are purple, green and yellow. Had to be cautious to limit the purple and not making the quilt girly. Upon applying the letters on the black background the colors really popped. Decided to quilt with black thread on the top. Luckily, it did tone down the color of the letters.
Love the tight quilting on there. Gives structure and sore shoulders, ha.
Customer was happy and I realized I had missed applique. Good thing I have some stuff cut out and ready to go for another project.
