My Creative Space
Just to ease into it I am doing the two small blocks (Cut 2 x 20" Squares). The patterns are full size and you can use them as overlays to position the pieces which is pretty handy. As this quilt requires a bit more precision that I am use to in needle turn I have decided to tack the large pieces down through the freezer paper. All the pieces are quite large so this will help keep the freezer paper attached while I stitch and it didn't really take that long to do. These are only half the pieces of this block but I thought it would be good just to tackle a couple at a time.
And if you are wondering about the quilt from last week quilting was interrupted by 10th birthday celebration, however I did a bit more yesterday the centre tree is all quilted and I have started quilting the background and will be heading into the floral border soon. I might find time to do a bit more today, shouldn't take too much longer to finish.
