The ideas have been flowing in like a tidal wave! So many cute ideas. The problem with that is I'm a visual/hands on kinda quilter. Which means I need to see it, feel it, play around with it and that makes scrap pieces when there's several ideas. I could use EQ7 to draft a quilt, but it can take longer, especially when drawing applique pieces. So most of the time I use good old paper and pencil. Another problem is my mind sees elaborate applique that me, myself and I have no interest in making. The little pink mustache or grammar school bird shape was one of those ideas.
Here's the little birdy shape strutting her stuff. Oh yes, a scallop around this dresden would be ADORABLE! But the three musketeer alter ego's rejected the plan. What a lazy gang of naysayers. They quickly put in their two cents of how long it would take to make the pieces, let alone stitch them down. (sigh) So what's a gal to do but take the advice of a group that knows me so well. They know if I go with this plan it'll become a UFO. I tried my best to let them know that it's ONLY a four block setting, and they reminded me that it's canning season in Podunk, and free time for quilting is very limited. The voice of reason, where were you when I buying fabric, templates I'll never use and what about during the expensive sewing machine purchases? I don't recall you helping me out then! Oh well what's a gal to do, this is a democracy. So me, myself and I have voted to go with the easier plan. But I want everyone in bloggyland to know Lea Anne wants the scallops!
The one thing that we all agree on is linking up at these great linky parties. We voted and its unanimous you should visit each of these links, and of course link up your lovelies too! If you don't have a blog that's okay, because most linky parties let you link from other social media. Me, myself and I are very powerful persuaders so...see you there!
