Fabric Collage

So I cut some one inch strips




I cross-cut the strips to one and half inch rectangles


and placed them on to the sticky side of paper-backed fusible web


I had the fusible web resting on a square ruler for easy transfer to the ironing board





I only gently pressed so as to not disturb my arrangement

this is what it looks like from the back



I carefully removed the paper backing then fused it to a white fabric foundation
I then pinned it to my wadding, in this case, pellon



here you can see how I'm stitching it down



I have yet to stitch the green down

there's a little more to be added to the quiltlet after this

It looks like a footloose and fancy free project. I see blue skies and green grass.

This is my favorite type of project - it's looking great, I can't wait to see what you add next!

I've never seen a block made like this. It looks great and I think it's lots of fun to make!
