Design Wall Monday

I started yet another quilt over the weekend. My cousin is having a birthday in a couple weeks and we will all be at the lake. A decade or so ago we were in a quilt shop at my request and there were some wall hanging patterns with black silhouette fused appliqué on sunset type fabrics They caught her eye and bought fabric for me she wanted her girls in kayaks on the lake.  So more than a few years later I am getting to work on it.  I enlarged the kayaks on the printer, now I need to tweak the sizes some.    The front kayak should be a little smaller, the kayak in the middle needs a reflection and the smallest should be a little bigger but now I am out of printer ink and I live in a very small town so I will draw and cut and trace onto fusible then cut it out in black.  I can see a lot of horizontal quilting for the sky and water using yellow, orange and black thread. The quilting is going to be fun.  She has probably forgotten all about it so it will be a surprise.  Be inspired at Judy's DWM.  --Ann--

Like how you have laid your pieces out so far - it's very effective.

What a cool quilt! I love how you made the sun and reflection. It will be a wonderful surprise when she receives it from you.
