Wow this week flew past me!
I do have a little quilting/sewing to show for it,
but not much!
Last year I showed these wool applique blocks I made..
I made six more and set them aside, knowing I wanted to make a quilt with them.
Now is the time!
This week I have been making blocks,
using these appliqued blocks as the center.
In the quilt group I belong to, we were given this pattern
and were asked to put a quote, saying or whatever
we wanted in the center as a friendship block.
We were going to trade them with the other group members.
(We actually gave them all to our leader as a surprise!)
I made mine with a wool applique block like these
and knew right away that I wanted an entire quilt made like this.
Let me just say that my seam ripper has become an extension of my hand!
I don't know if I have ever had to rip out as many seams as I have with these blocks.
These blocks are 16 1/2" square, so this is going to be a large quilt
with the 12 wool blocks I have appliqued!
It's funny how you can look at a block for two days and not see the mistake...
then all of a sudden it hits you!
The top red HST was backwards on this block until I fixed it.
I have two more blocks worth of HST's almost ready...
just need to trim the dog ears.
This is the pattern I used for the wool applique.
I really, really like Lisa's patterns.
Peaceful Quilting to all!
