World Map Quilt
Craig gave me all of Saturday "off" to do whatever I wanted! Yay! After heading out for some shopping and lunch with Hannah, I came home and kicked them all out so I could finally work on my world map quilt that I have been wanting to make for several months now.
First, I laid the map out on my water fabric to make sure it would fit properly:
Then, I cut out each individual continent (I'm adding small islands- like Taiwan, Iceland, Tasmania - later) and placed it on the water fabric, and pinned it down.
I cut out the fabric in the continent shape, slid my "land color" fabric underneath, and pinned them together.
I will reverse applique them to the quilt, going around each continent two or three times with my thread.
This part is coming together faster than I thought it would - it's really exciting!
