Today we are in the 50's and almost all of the snow is gone. Tomorrow we'll be back to near 70º again.
I've been working on the blocks for Lyn Brown's 2010 Baltimore Album BOM
I'm not necessarily doing them in order. Here's what I've finished so far. I'm using needleturn applique for mine.
Block Four...Quail and Oak Leaves. The quail is meant to be a silhouette so it's black (charcoal really) instead of brown.
I finished appliqueing the woven basket on the way to Iowa last week, only to discover I had been looking at the wrong seam for centering the basket and it was way off to one side (the backgrounds are all pieced differently from multiple fabrics..this one happens to be a log cabin). Don't ask me how I could spend the hours I did working on it and not notice that until it was done. But I did and then I had to rip it all out and start over again! I made my basket a little more complex than the fused version Lyn shows, so it took some work to take it apart!
Block Three...Pat Nixon's Rose. These flowers are ruched...fun.
