I managed to complete a basket block this week. It was very clear as I worked how rusty I’ve gotten at hand appliqué. Looking back, I don’t think I’ve done any in at least a year. Clearly embroidery and English paper piecing have taken over my hand work.
Given how many appliqué blocks I have left, I’m sure my curves will smooth back out and my pace will pick up. On to the next block!
My UFO for April has been sitting on the design wall. I had decided I wanted flannel for the back and none of the local shops had anything that worked. Saturday a big squishy package arrived in the mail and the fabric has been washed so I can get everything basted for quilting now.
See what’s up on other design walls this week here.
Visit the Pink Pincushion and see how everyone is progressing on their block of the month projects.
