Decision made

I decided to work on the pixel quilt that looks like windows first. I sent for some gradient fabrics to make the circle quilt so while I wait for them to arrive I will start with the windows. I do have some construction issues to work out. The white windows have curved edges. If I want to piece it the curved edges will be impossible. Should I keep those curves? I was also thinking about appliqué. If I do white on black I will have to line the white with another piece of white fabric. Maybe reverse appliqué? Any thoughts?

I did post these questions for EB. Waiting to see what she says.

Just saw this technique online....

  1. Oh, I would not fuss with that method in the video. If the dark area will be a single color, I would suggest you stick with the reverse applique idea. Your mentioning it set off a lightbulb in my head, remembering a piece I did which was full of circles. I hit upon the idea of fusing Misty Fuse to one fabric, cutting out the circles and then fusing it to the second fabric which would show through the holes. Since this is a "window" I think that kind of reverse applique would be perfect. See this blog post.
