|Incorrectly placed windows and gutter|
Guess, I'd better explain!
Working on the HH Hall Building project, the first piece of fabric that I cut wasn't quite right for the alignment of the windows and gutter. I didn't realize this until I tried to attach this piece to the rest of the building! Of course, this was it on the fabric so I couldn't recut!
I took it apart and started again. I thought it was spot on. The following day, I realized it was still wrong so I took it apart and started for the third time. Next, I removed the window from the other side of the building and repositioned it. THEN, it was correctly placed.
It was still correctly placed the following morning when I checked too! While I was reworking that section, I wasn't laughing though!
By the end of that day, I had placed the landscaping, curb/street and tree fabrics. The fabric for those large trees was cut from the same piece of batik! I couldn't believe how the trees brought the piece to life!
|Fused oversized section next to copy|
Also, my piece is at least two inches bigger than the copy. Making it bigger was one of the "rules." It is a wise rule so that there will be some wiggle room when the pieces are readied for the facing and sleeve!
I'm pleased with how closely my work resembles the photo copy. I'm also pleased that the fabric colors resemble the colors in the photo. I'll add the color photo for you to compare. (Another rule was to match the colors in the photo as closely as possible.)
Most of all, I'm RELIEVED that my piece accurately matches the photo copy!
Next up is stitching all those pieces. I'm planning to use cotton thread that matches the fabric and I'll be using a tiny zig zag. Hm. . m. . m. . any guesses on how many hours this step will take??
