WIP Wednesday - 01/29/2014

I had a lot of time on the weekend to work on my BOM. I am happy that this block is almost done and I will be able to add the embroidery stitches and start the next block on the weekend.

(It will look prettier when I iron it too.). It is going better with the basting glue rather than the pins. I highly recommend the glue. I also recommend Jan Patek's needle turn appliqué videos on YouTube. She is a fantastic teacher!

This is the video I watched to help with all the points on those stars!


I also finally got the binding on my Granny squares quilt.

I have a really bad sinus cold so I have been stitching the binding down by hand this week. I am hoping to get it done and blog about it next week.

It's also a big day in our home... It's Rosie's first birthday! The girls are very excited and I think they are hoping for birthday cake!

  1. Love the applique! Thanks for the tip about Jan Patek--maybe it will give me the confidence to start something myself. Very cute dog too!

  2. I'm a big fan of the 505 basting spray for quilt sandwiches but I've not used it for appliqué. I'll have to try it! Lynne.

  3. I adore that quilt block, the little squirrel is super cute. Lovely.

  4. Of course Rosie needs a birthday cake! And you a get-well-soon cake, and a terrific-block cake ;-)
