A sunny day playing in the studio saw me making lots of progress on the centre medallion of Technicolor Galaxy... last week's WIP! I suspect you're going to be seeing it on Wednesdays a lot for the next year or so!
Yup... that's glue. All these pieces are glue basted in place. You use very thin lines of white school glue, then iron it to dry and set the glue. The muslim foundation is pinned over the freezer paper template of the entire block.
And complete! I love watching all these pieces come together!
Since I'm waiting on some tools to arrive in order to make the bias tape, this hung out on the design wall for a few days. The more I looked at it, the more I realized that I had somehow slipped and added too much red.
A little re-work and I'm much happier. Hopefully I can cover up the glue that shows on one of the purple pieces. Once my ultra fine glue tips arrive, this problem shouldn't happen anymore!
This week-end's MMQG Sew In will have me finally getting down to business on the 12 star point blocks! Bring on the foundation piecing!
