I started with a pencil sketch.
Then I used this tutorial to thread sketch the wire whisk attachment.
I also used foundation paper on the back and drawing paper on the front while I stitched it.
I had to use a tweezers to get some of the paper out but it turned out okay.
To make the mixer paddle I used this tutorial to piece the background fabric into the gray and then used it again to piece the gray into the background again. (does that make sense?) I hadn't planned on thread sketching on this portion of the block. But, the gray needed to stand out from the background fabric more and the sketching did secure the piecing better.
I paper pieced the dough hook.
Then I improv pieced the tops of all of the attachments and improvised connecting them all into one block. Lastly, I did some thread sketching on the dough hook to tie it all together.
Sooooo...that was my process for the September block. October's month is "all things orchard". I've got some ideas brewing. Stay tuned...
