On my design wall

DSCN0372Last week, I showed you the fabrics I planned to use for my my entry to the Quilting Arts magazine Map It Out reader challenge.  I enlarged a map of the area where I live, and traced the edges of the riverbanks onto fusible web.  Once the river was in place, I used my gridded fabrics to denote residential (pink) and industrial (gray) areas.  I love the contrast of the natural lines of the river with the geometric shapes of the streets and parks.

Here’s how it looks right now.  I still have to add the major roads and railway tracks with satin stitching.  Then I’ll do some free motion stitching.  The finished size will be 12 x 10 inches.  TerryAske_Map_in progress

I have a lot more projects in the planning stages, but no pictures yet.  I’m going to a sew-in this Saturday, so I hope to have lots to show next week.

As always, I’m linking up with these blogs for WiP Wednesday.  Click on the buttons below to see all the people participating and check out their projects.
