On my design wall today is a small wall quilt for the Christmas season. Piecing it was a breeze, but if I had really looked at the applique the pattern calls for, I might have hesitated. There are 60 little, bitty red circles for the holly berries. I spent several hours last week prepping them, a process that involves little no-melt templates, lots of spray sizing, and a very hot travel iron. They are now glued in place and ready for hand stitching. Also on my design wall are some of the Jane Stickle blocks I am working on this month.
My first blog post occurred two years ago on one of Judy’s Design Wall Mondays. So, even though I have been very lax about making DWM posts of late, I knew I shouldn’t miss this one. Click on this link to find the details about the giveaway I am hosting to celebrate the milestone. Drawing will be Friday, August 23, when I will reach both my blogaversary and my 200th post.
And...as always, be sure and check out the other posts on Patchwork Times today.
