.....tonight! All my checkerboard blocks are done - YEAH! and now I am doing a blanket stitch around the applique on the alternate blocks.....
I was originally going to do this with invisible thread but then I decided I liked the look of matching threads better so that is the plan.....however, I am finding that the Soft Fuse is not strong enough to just stitch around the applique by machine. Barb suggested that I try Totally Stable so I have put the project to bed for tonight and will try that tomorrow....thanks again Barb! She knows everything - an encyclopedia of quilting - she should write a book! Seriously!!!!
Got an e-mail today from my friend Laurissa who I am going to take behind the store and shoot!!!!! Check this out http://www.civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/ and you will see why! Just another project to start......what a brat! She knew I wouldn't be able to resist this one!
I am going to put this blog on my list of favourites and it seems there's going to be a new block each week, so, maybe I can keep up - I mean what's one block a week! Really (until you get behind 3 or 4 weeks!?!?!).
Okay, gonna call it a night and head for bed early for a change....
Hope everyone has a great day!
