Sometimes, when I get an idea for a new pattern, the title and the layout jump into my head fully formed. So it was with my latest.
I saw in my head what I wanted to do. Once I got the heffalumps drawn, I thought of making them in batiks. I pulled a few out of my stash, and purchased a couple more. Then a brain storm occurred. I thought, what am I doing!? I’ve got these precious hand-dyes left over from the super secret piecing project! Back the batiks went into the stash, and it was full speed ahead.
In choosing the colors, I did a rather primitive mockup on the design wall with chunks of fabric.
I think I ended up changing one ear.
Until next time,
