Sometimes it helps to make a public commitment! After I finished putting myself on the spot in my post yesterday, I promptly went into my studio and sliced a couple chunks off of one of the pieced strips. I pieced several of them together with black strips between each one. (I love how vibrant colors look against a black background.) Then I did some more with white.
Next, I got out a stack of polka dot fabrics that I bought last month. I purposely got 10 or 12 black and white polka dot fabrics of different sizes with the intention of using them in some of these push ups. A little fussy cutting and you can do some fun things with polka dots!
This is where I stopped last night at about 9 PM.
I think I will make this about two or three times wider than it is right now, but at least I’ve made a start. I might get to squeeze in another hour or two today or tomorrow, but otherwise, I hope to finish it on Tuesday, so stay tuned!
