More progress being made, more decisions. I have painted the background (no photo- you’ll have to wait for that!). Which orange to use? Here are 5 slightly different shades I can use. I chose the darkest.
Next: multi-coloured or single-coloured dots? I think I will use only yellow, but a slightly darker yellow on the lightest fabric. Also, I tried two different thread weights- you can’t even see the thinner thread on the middle test swatch, so definitely the heavier white.
- painting ALL those squares with dots of yellow paint
- stitching the camp area
- making thousands of “people blocks” and deciding how/ where to attach them
Then I will step back and look at it again before proceeding…
2 weeks later:
Painting on background done, background quilted and now the background is ready for refugees.
Almost done! Still to do:
- attach roads
- attach camp to background
- touch ups
- final quilting
No more photos now until this is done!
