I have been honestly agonizing over what I really had to enter this year and the Mister saw me flipping through my Flickr while he was picking fabrics for the Skill Point Sunday pillow.
"Have I seen three Pac Mans?"
Then I realized it has been the year of Pac-Man for me. And I really must love it more than the other things I've been making because I've made it three times.
Which means that you'll all be seeing it for the 4th time now.
My favorite picture of this wall hanging is still this one where it's falling down.
This started as the main project for my For Love of Solids Swap Partner. Then I thought I had messed it up so I set all the pieces aside and started over from scratch (the one I sent off had a solid black backing and binding).
After I sent it off, I missed it. So I dug out the first one I had started and finished it for myself which is the one pictured above. I had stumbled across that Timeless Treasures fabric I used for the back when I was looking for black and white fabrics for another project.
It's raw-edge applique because I just love the way it looks.
Before I made this quilt I would have told you that I wasn't an applique girl. At all.
Now I know I love raw edge.
I'm starting to branch into reverse applique.
It was one of my first steps into learning new skills. And I love it for that.
The long rectangular shape was perfect for the design. Turns out it fits lovely on the wall outside my studio door as well which is a bonus.
The third version of this is currently on its way to Lucy and I hope it gets there soon.
