I've been quilting! I have a few things to show, too! For this post, I'm going to focus on the hand-applique. I was just checking to see when I last had an update to my Sarah's Revival blocks, and I was surprised to see that the last one I posted was back in February when I was working away on blocks during the Winter Olympics. Of course, I probably haven't had much more progress to share!
I have finished two blocks here in Indiana, though. In case you are new to my blog and don't know much about this project, it is a pattern by Sue Garman.
It features 36 "paper cut" appliqued blocks. "Paper cut" refers to the process when you fold paper/fabric as you would paper to cut a snowflake--and then cut the pattern out of the resulting folded triangle.
Recently, I completed my 26th block, so I only have 10 more to go!! (And then the borders...)
Some of the remaining blocks are the most complex yet, so what I really need to do is work at them more consistently. If I stitch for a few hours a day and then set it aside for a week or longer, it takes a bit to get going again with smooth results. In Virginia, I was letting two weeks or longer pass between my efforts, as I mostly worked on it at Bee. Here in our apartment, I'm getting a little station all set up so that I can work at it as I watch TV. Hand applique gets better and easier the more I do it. There are two weeks and a few more days until we close on the house, and I don't have much to do in that time but wait, so I'm challenging myself to get three blocks done! Do you think I can do it?
Have a great day!
