Yeah, I'm getting baaaad about posting. Gotta remember! But I did have a validish excuse...well, for a day...My brother Mychal turned the big 2-1! I'm just his sister but it feels like he should still be, I don't know, 10? He'll always be my little baby brother...I can hear him groaning at that from across cyberspace (zip it, Myke! :D)...even if he is almost a flippin' foot taller than me!
I finally tried hand quilting..I wanted to give it a whirl because it is SO outside my skill set. I'm a free motion quilting kind of girl. Fusible applique and I are BFFs. But you know, being a glutton for punishment I decided to try something outside my comfort zome (machines). I shouldn't say that...I DO like embroidery and cross stitch...so handwork isn't entirely outside of my comfort zone, but when it comes to quilting, it is.
And...I liked it. But I had the best teacher for this method. She's been teaching quilting for years and hand quilting/hand applique is her game. Seriously, her work is IMPECCABLE. So it was a real joy to learn from her!
I can't wait to see what our next pattern will be!
