I'm participating in the Just Take 2 (NOT!!) quiltalong using red/whites and have really been enjoying it. It's a job to keep up with the assignments and some of the blocks are really challenging. The latest blocks included a large applique. I didn't think I could easily copy their design and didn't think it was necessary that mine match their pattern anyway. (what can I say? that's typical ME). So I went through my pattern books and found something in one of the Baltimore Album books---it's larger than they suggested but I'll figure it out. I appliqued it down by hand. Not making any others, I'll tell ya.
I'm kind of tempted to write my name in the center, as I've seen that done in the antique blocks. I'm happy with it. Definitely not perfect but good enough (one of my favorite concepts!).
How are your sow-a-long blocks coming? I'm busy writing patterns and sewing blocks so get to work!!! More is on the way!!
Love to you all,
