I took several photos of the whole process. This is not a tutorial. I have explained raw edge applique before, so I am not going to explain it today. I just wanted to show how I created my imaginary map. There is not a pattern either. I did not measure or try to get anything to an exact size.
I created an imaginary quilted map of Boscobel, Wisconsin (our home) and the Atlantic Ocean and Amsterdam, the Netherlands (where my grandbaby lives). The distance between here and there seems like it is "across the universe".
I draw the lines with a fine point sharpie. That way I have a guideline to follow when I quilt it.
I plan to quilt (thread paint it) and bind it on Saturday. I will take it with me to the Netherlands. Yes - I am going there!
Thanks for following along!
