I started today by cutting and stitching the background of blue and white. I used a flexible curve to set, hold and assist in cutting. I placed the blue on top of the white, set the flex curve and cut along the edge. I then matched the centers with right side together and sewed the curve. They turned out perfect.
I used my applique pressing sheet to work with units of the design. Once they were together on the applique sheet I could peel them off and set them on the background.
What I will really not like doing is the machine applique. I find that to be sooooooo boring. Oh well, this just comes with the territory.
New top going on the frame in the morning. It will require a lot of stitch in the ditch, so I will be working on it all week. I will also be using wool batting with this quilt......I just love the way it quilts.
Have fun this week and LET'S GO SEW!!!!!!!!
