Say it isn’t so!!!!!
Yes, I have finally become tired of not having anything to do with my hands while Michael and I are watching TV at night. Many times I sit with my computer in my lap but it is so easy to get so completely engrossed in what I am doing that I lose the time with my husband, not to mention that it is almost impossible to concentrate on whatever we are watching.
I was sitting at my local quilt shop and saw this cute pattern….
I know the basics of doing applique but it is obvious that I need to refine my technique.
For the first block, I cut the pieces out of freezer paper, used starch to fold the raw edges under and then hand-stitched them to the background. So far this has worked fairly well, and hopefully I will get better at rounding the corners smoothly!!!!
Here is the first block……
I am thinking about making 4 or 9 of these, piecing them into a small wall hanging and then using my new found beading skill to add interest (and maybe hide a few flaws).
More to come!!!!!!
