The last 2 weeks I have had more trouble figuring out what day it is! Today felt like Monday to me, and I have no idea why!
Well, I made today into a quilting day!
And remember what I said about templates the other day, how much I was getting tired of the HopScotch pieces and the fact that they were cut using a template... Well..............
The gals at the quilting group decided they wanted to learn to do a Dresden Plate Block. Ok, guess what one uses to cut the pieces? Yup, templates. But, guess what I made today... a Dresden block that's probably going to be a wall hanging. I always figured they'd be really hard to do.... piece of cake!
And to make the petals pointy, I had to sew and then turn them. Easy and fun!
20 petals all sewn together. Don't know what else to call these things other than petals.
I have it pinned on a white background. In retrospect, I might have picked blue or black or something other than white if I were doing it again, I'll have to see!
Then I took bright orange thread and sewed a little fancy stitch around the outside. I'm considering doing that same stitch down the sides of all the petals.
Here's what it looks like from afar!
I fussy cut a center for it. Very modern and kind of hippy looking! hehehehehe. I haven't attached it yet, still might go with another solid color, yelow might be nice. :)
So far, so good, it was a LOT of fun! We'll see what I think when it's done. It's going to be small, so I can even quilt it myself! :)
