What? No Applique? What am I thinking taking my road less traveled. I have to admit I am a bit rusty with my piecing skills. I have been making LeMoyne Stars and have been struggling because of one tiny mistake of pressing one seam in the wrong direction. All these years of sewing and still capable of making beginner mistakes. It took me awhile but I finally figured out what I was doing incorrectly and now have nice flat 4″ LeMoyne Stars. Whew disaster averted. Once this block is completed I will have finished the assigned amount of work for this month. I am toying with the idea of completing another round to get ahead. I guess that would put me in an overachiever status. I’m okay with that. This pattern is certainly challenging. It’s visually very busy, perfect for scrappy look. I do have a bit of a problem choosing the fabrics for the pieced star segment. I am just not able to visualize the end result. But once chosen it is what it is as I AM NOT ripping it out and choosing something else.
I did finish my friend’s quilt and delivered it. She was very pleased with it. I too was very pleased with my quilting. I challenged myself beyond what I was comfortable and expanded my skillset.
Scooter, one of my kitties, is totally obsessed with my Christmas tree so I got her a snuggle bed and put under the tree. Proved to be a winner. She loved it.
Have a wonderful day and happy stitching.
