On My Design Wall Today!

I faced a dilemma this week. All of the Camper Rows that I have acquired have lovely blue and green backgrounds ... well, MOST of them do. A couple have something else altogether. Those two just don't fit in well with the rest of the rows. The one I pulled to work on this weekend had this fabric for the background:
While it is a nice fabric, it wasn't going to blend well with my other rows! So I started pulling options from my stash:
 Too dull on the left, OK on the right, but it is a FQ, so I would have to seam it.
 The one on the left is too light. It is a hand dye that has almost no color to it.
 Oh! the one on the left is not bad, I might just use that one, but the green on the right is just not going to work (though I love the fabric!).
 I found one more possibility - this hand dye is just right, not too bright, not too busy, the applique elements all show up ... So it is now ready for applique stitches!

Design Wall Monday - September 12, 2016

Life is busy, college is in full swing, the Boybarian is job hunting, Princess Sunshine is in the throes of Tech Week, and The Army Guy starts terminal leave (and job hunting).

I got a few minutes in my Sewing Dungeon over the weekend and got another camper row fused, ready for applique stitches:
That makes two, with lots more to do!

What did you work on this weekend?
