Our TAS (The Applique Society) group took on the national challenge to design a panel that represents our area. When I say we, I mean Katie M. said here's a thing, I don't have time to do it. Any takers? Well, naturally, I volunteered because I don't have enough things going on. I thought I'd go home and design something in EQ7 but I couldn't get the program to load on my computer. Yeah! So, this is a mishmash of copyright free coloring pages that represent the Metro East area. There's the city skyline, violets are the IL state flower, the State Seal in the middle, oak leaves for the state tree, couldn't leave out the cardinal which is our state bird and the TAS logo bluebird was the only required element. Then I tried to take a pano picture... imagine, if you will, that this is a straight piece of paper... no weird ripples or waves.
I was looking for something mindless to do at some point and started some pillow cases. I was trucking along pretty good but hated the yellow flowers and lost interest. I'm sure at some point, I'll fix it and move on.
