Did you join in the fun for last night's FNSI? Here are the things I accomplished. Again not quite as much I hoped but nonetheless, I did accomplish something!
I finished stitching the February block for the Birdie Stitchery BOM. I am caught up with a week to spare before the next block is released!
This is a good thing!
I also finished Block 8 for Block-A-Palooza - Basket of Geese!
This block is a applique block - a change from all the pieced blocks.
I chose to machine applique the geese with a small blanket stitch and the basket with a zigzag applique stitch.
I like how this block is so different from the rest but fits right in.
Take a look!
To be honest, I am a little out of my comfort zone.
I not used to purchasing fabric and making a quilt without knowing the end results. I chose not to use the fabric that the designers were using - even though it is among my favorites right now - I didn't want to spend the money not knowing what this quilt would look like.
Are you like this or do you like a mystery?
So I chose the line Sips of Summer with a few other fabrics mixed in to round things out.
After the first few blocks, I really could not see how this quilt would come together...but as I add blocks...it's pulling itself together.
What do you think?
On a final note, I would like to send my thanks to my mug rug swap partner, Heather Spence.
Aren't they cute! Love the shoe!
I'm off to my sewing room! Hope you enjoy your day!
