1. agreeably pungent or sharp in taste or flavor; pleasantly biting or tart
2. agreeably stimulating, interesting, or attractive
Doesn't that word just make your mouth feel a little strange, but good? I'm working on my projects this weekend and am faced with a little sense of this odd flavor treat as I work on my "Onion" for the Salsa series. I did something a little different from my Tomato and Tomatillos on this piece. Rather than having everything be freehand machine applique, I put a layer of organza for the sliced face of the onion and just sewed in the lines of the layers of the onion. This gives it a translucent, shiny appearance, like a real onion.
Now that I have the onion finished, I need to make the background on which to applique it. I'm a little unsure how I'm going to do the trapunto on this one, as it has a real sense of depth with each onion behind the other. I'll have to think on that. I should have it finished in the next couple days and will post the rest of the pictures from the process of making it.
|I'm also finally starting to get my Waterfall quilt UFO pieced together. I'm planning to try our a quilt-as-you-go method, per Leah Day from her Freemotion Quilting Project. I've put together these two rows and plan to quilt 2 rows together at a time. I've been thinking I'd use Leah's "Mesh Curtain" design to quilt this, but I'm a little worried that it will be too busy or will dominate the quilt, making the color shifts and curved pieces less noticeable. Any thoughts or suggestions on how I should quilt it?|
