My dream is to do a series of these magnificent red and green quilts and so this will definitely have to be the next one. Anyone want to join in?
One part of doing these blocks I'm not fond of and that's those bitty little circles that get stitched over the bulk of seam allowances. I like to use these mylar templates with starch.
When I do really small circles, I don't cut it out until after I have done the running stitch around the shape, it's so much easier to handle.
I got some great mail this week, I won a giveaway on Ruth's blog, country log cabin. Look at the goodies I got, how generous is this? I love the sign which I'm going to find a special place for. The magnetic pin keep, in pink, and the gorgeous fabrics and just look at that pouch with it's special zip pull! Thank you Ruth.
