I sent my CC quilt off to be quilted!! and am very excited about that. I cut all my strips for a bargello quilt, but have not gotten anything else done with those yet.
I am working on the block of the month applique blocks by SuzGuz designs. All the blocks are heart designs! Cute and fun to do. So, I have all the pieces cut out for January and February, and I use thin card stock, starch the pieces, then press the seam allowances down around the card stock. I then can place each piece on my background and just enjoy the applique, not having to turn down seam allowances like needle point applique. So it is so fun to do! This one is just pinned in place, not pressed, a work in progress.
I am working a lot!! nothing new, right? I know many of you are so cold, hope all is well and you are enjoying a hot cuppa of something great. We are traveling to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania this spring for a class with DH's work. So I can explore a little of Amish country! It is close to Lancaster county...hehehe!!! How fun!!
Have a wonderful day!!
