Here is my 30-page, 3-hour template for this project, laying on top of the background fabric. I can’t believe I would have offered this as a template for home use. Taping together a large template like this is actually more trouble than it’s worth!!
Here’s a shot of the background fabric, after I traced the stitching lines. Unfortunately, only the white lines register on my camera.
I’m psyched and anxious to see what Spoonflower.com does with my test design. If I can eliminate template-making and tracing from my life, it would be well worth the money!!
This evening, after work, I bought the fabric I’ll use: an orange batik with a circular motif; a mottled green batik; and, a subtle white-on-white barbed wire stripe. When they come out of the dryer, I’ll begin pinning them in place.
