It was difficult to complete the blocks as I traveled.
I've shared ideas and drawings, but tonight I got out the fabric and I share with you my ideas.
I purchased a child's bib made by the artesana Nasaria Patishtan Diaz from the municipio Chamular.
So, my Spanish is not very good. and I have been trying to find out more about the program under which this small garment was made. I will investigate further.
I bought the garment with the idea of using it in my challenge series on the last day of an exhibition at the Oaxaca Textile Museum.
The garment is a hand embroidered baby bib (B. Chico) I'm choosing a pieced of fabric to applique it to, and then I will applique other images on the bib… in fact, these images were on a piece of fabric that contained candy, given to me as a gift.
The following photos are of fabric I have in my stash to quilt the bib onto….
I'm auditioning all three.
I love this one, but it's a little busy.
This one is fabulous too, but I think I need to keep it for a specific purpose… like, applique lilies superimposed over the top……!!! maybe.
The images I'm appliqueing on are already on a white background so I put fusible web on the back of the fabric and cut around the perimeter of the pictures leaving just a little white on the edge… then I don't need to be absolutely exact when appliqueing..
