I finally have some progress to report on my Hearts Abloom project. The machine quilting is complete and the binding is ready for the handwork part of the process. It will be a while before I finish that stage because I need to applique several Jane Stickle blocks (plus a certain mug rug swap project) in order to keep up with the pace this month.
My collection of Jane Stickle blocks completed in July is growing. The focus this month has been on blocks with diamonds. That boils down to a lot of applique pieces with narrow, sharp outer points. Doreen promises to shift the focus to something else in her August tutorials -- and I’ll be ready for the change.
