I was successful with everything on my list for the past week - let me show you!
The Crabapple Hill embroidery is finished, a border added, and layered for quilting. Here's how it looks as of Sunday evening -
I'm doing some simple handquilting through the rows and around the outside of the design. Hoping to have it all finished up by the end of the week!
The turquoise trees for March in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge are finished. Here are all of my trees for this quilt so far!
And the final block for my blue and white hand-pieced and embroidery quilt is close to being finished.
What's on the list for this week?
1. Handwork on both of the above projects - ongoing! This is my evening stitching.
2. The new Book Club QAL is starting up and there are templates this year. I need to find some template plastic and get the templates for the first block made up.
3. I want to get started on the turquoise HSTs for my Zigzag quilt. Green and orange are made, and need to be sewn together in their rows.
4. And, last but definitely not least - I'd like to get the sunflowers appliqued onto the Scrappy Sprouts quilt top. I'm thinking I'll do this by machine just to make it go faster.
Question for those of you out there with more applique experience than me - would you glue baste them on first? That worked well for keeping the centers in place before stitching!
