Kudos first, thank you Marian at Seams to be Sew for bring this all together. Without her, we'd be lost.
Here's my process...
I like to start in reality and go from there.
Here's my reality photo. It's up at Cape Flattery, WA. It's the furthest northwest tip of the contiguous United States and just a beautiful walk.
As I was walking, my imagination told me, hey what if lived in a cabin at the end of this beautiful walkway. So, I created one.
In reality, the pathways meander and change until you reach the cliffs.
Where there's cliff caves.
The real place is amazing, I highly recommend a trip into the boonies.
Here are the how-tos-
This is made with raw edge applique with spaces technique. So, it's built on one piece of the Ombre Stonehenge fabric.
After you've cut the freezer paper pattern apart group the pieces together according to letter.
Choose a fabric to start with and cut your fusible (I use Steam-A-Seam) smaller than your fabric (You don't want the fusible to get on your ironing board). Peel away the backing and lay it sticky side down on the wrong side of your fabric. Then, iron it down for as long as takes to get a complete fuse to the material.
Peel away the other side of the release paper, leaving the fusible (sticky) on the fabric.
Place the freezer paper pieces on the sticky fabric. You can put them really close together because this is all raw edge cutting and you won't need the normal allowances. Then, cut out the pieces.
You can cut off the black outline as you are cutting the piece out because you will want the space to show the background.
Next, place your uncut paper pattern either in a window or on a light pad with the black fabric on top. With the light going through, you will be able to see the pattern through the black.
Here it is with the light off.
Then, peel the freezer paper pieces away from the fabric and stick it on top of the black background.
As you add the pieces you will start to see the picture come together.
When you have all of the pieces placed down you can take it to the ironing board to do a final iron.
Now you're ready to trim it up and quilt it!
