Not too much going on this week . . .
. . . but I did manage to applique another leaf and combine it with more stars. The blocks are not sewed together. Still not sure where all this is headed.
To applique the leaf I put freezer paper on the right side of the fabric, cut it out, then pin using small applique pins for a little extra reinforcement. I leave about 1/8" all around turning under as I sew. The paper stays on until I'm done. The result is a nice "crisp" applique.
I bought some new fabric online from Hancock's :)
Hundreds of birds made a stop in our backyard! I took these pics from inside.
Cold weather makes me think of two crazy quilts I have that once belonged to my mother-in-law. I believe a friend had given them to her. This is one and it weighs a ton! It's made entirely of velvet scraps and tied with green yarn.
And I better get crankin' if I want to make and finish this fish pillow for my brother's big birthday the end of December :) Stay tuned.
Have a great week!
