on a rainy day at your house? It means a day in the sewing room for me.
I decided -- after some prompting from Linda -- to get my BOM for Hello Moon finished before the June block was published.
I have the backgrounds all cut out and some fabrics put together for the moons so I just have the rest to put together and stitch. Easy, right? Well...................
I goofed. I ran the pattern off and started to cut out my pieces. Then it hit me. I hadn't reversed the pieces. I decided to go for it anyway. I had the grass cut and the moon and I didn't want to waste any fabric.
I opened up the laptop and with the aid of the photo I placed the moon on and stitched it down. I'm doing raw edge appliqué on these blocks so no big deal.
I decided on "Swiss cheese" for my cheese. I remember as a small child being told the moon was made from Swiss cheese. Now of course, those "holes" we see are actually craters.
I searched for grey fabric and then spied this new one I bought for Poppet's quilt. It worked beautifully, but I must confess I did do fusible web for the mouse. Those were very tiny pieces and I didn't want to muck it up. I have the embroidery to do on this, but it looks good and I'm now ready for the June BOM.
Now Linda and I can pick on a couple of others whose photos haven't been posted yet........
The 15th and 16th of June happens to be a week-end, so, I will be posting The Collection on the 17th and 18th.
A brand new quilt will be featured on the 19th just in time for you to make it up for Canada Day. Want a hint?
As the block on the 18th is so very, very easy, I'm giving you another one on the 20th.
almost a full week of blogging!!! Then of course it's back to Wednesday and then I'm on holidays!!!!!!!
