On my design wall – 2014.01.08

This is my first blog post of 2014, so HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!

TerryAske_RainyDayPeopleI’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.
