panel #1

I finished the first panel for the Susan McCord Vine quilt-along. It took me 6 weeks to applique. I was actually surprised that it went that fast. It was so fun to work on I just couldn't stop!

A friend of mine suggested that I could make a collage to show all of the panel in a different way. It was fun to play around with the idea.

The program I used cropped the edges of the individual pictures but I think the overall effect is fun to look at. I'll have to play around with the program some more before I finish panel#2.
So with 12 more panels at 6 weeks each I should be able to finish this in 72 weeks. Or something like that... :0)
Happy Quilting!!

Your panel looks sensational, very Susan McCord! I love what you did with the collage, it looks quite amazing. Remember, one branch at a time, lol. I've just started another one and find it quite relaxing to stitch the leaves.

So pretty! Your colors are very appealing too. Nice work and I envy the project... or more correctly, the "sitting down to applique" part. It is telling me to find something like this to relax with!
