Yesterday was the beginning of the Fall 2016 Blog Tour to celebrate the release of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume 14.
Once again, I was part of the group of quilters that tested these blocks before publication. We began in April and the last block was finished in September.
Actually, for October, I feel somewhat accomplished. But now it’s November and I need to get some serious work done.
A number of Blogs I follow will start & end the month with a post of what they hope to accomplish and what they have accomplished for that month. I usually just share my projects as I go.
Yesterday I learned about the “One Monthly Goal” which is being hosted by Patty at Elm Street Quilt Blog. I think I’ll link up with “One Monthly Goal.”
Last Saturday was Clue #7 – The Great Reveal for the Project Linus Mystery Quilt Challenge. The previous 6 weeks gave us 6 different blocks to make. There were two blocks that only required one to be made. The other blocks needed 2 or 3 copies, but one required us to make 9 of the same block.
This week I did a little bit of Raw Edge Fusible Appliqué and I want to share a couple of Tips.
First, when using Fusible for either large pieces or for pieces that will result in multiple layers, trim the inner Fusible before applying it to the wrong side of the fabric. This will eliminate some excess layers which can cause the appliqué to result in thick layers. Sorry, I didn’t take any pictures. Envision, a large circle with the middle cut out making it look like a donut.
I’ve been keeping busy. In addition to Project Linus’ Gracie’s Get Well Garden Mystery Quilt Challenge, I am following two other Quilt Alongs.
I’ve shared a button on the right for one of the other Quilt Alongs. It isn’t a mystery. We already know the pattern, and we have a choice of which size we will be making.
