This is my first blog post of 2014, so HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
I’m making this little quilt for the SAQA 25th Anniversary Trunk Show. It needs to get to the show coordinator by January 31st and I’m sending it from Canada, so I have to allow additional shipping time for possible customs delays. So with a tight timeline, I decided to create yet another version of one of my favorite themes – Rainy Day People – rather than starting a new design from scratch.
I used some of the figures from my previous Rainy Day People quilts, and scaled the size to suit the 7 x 10 inch required size of this piece. The people and their umbrellas are fused to the background. I’ll outline the pieces with zigzag stitching, and then quilt the ‘rain’. I expect to have it finished and on its way by Friday.
