This month's offering is actually 2 blocks - sneaky, sneaky! And both of them include techniques that make my stomach do flip flops... and not in a good way. First up, the very scary Scrap Jar. Check out this momentous pic. Amazing, huh?
Once the jar portion was prepared for a wacky technique called Piece-lique, I got to the fun bit (at least for me) - improv piecing the scraps for inside the jar. Each seam was meant to be pressed open... I cheated a little and finger pressed those bad boys. Don't rat me out!
The construction portion of the Pin Cushion block went smoothly, though I did sub in Heat and Bond Light for the product recommended in the lesson. Sometimes it's just too tricky to get particular stabilizers and fusible webs around here.
Good Old Hockey Game quilt afterall!
Call the Midwife!
With today's efforts, I've now got all the blocks to date pieced. The quilting - that's another matter. Maybe next week-end! Three cheers for getting back to sewing! If you're on a hiatus, for whatever reason, I hope can get back to it soon. Sewing = Happy!
