Design Wall - October 15, 2012


Oooffda! Here's another finished block.

You can barely see the reins and harness on the reindeer but, once again, those will be embellished after quilting. Are you working on this quilt? I will warn you about the packages in the sleigh. Since I am machine appliqueing this, I found it fiddly, fiddly, fiddly. Put a little piece of fabric down and then take it to the machine and stitch. Go to the light box and put another little piece of fabric down and then take it to the machine to stitch. My little assembly line went right out the window when it came to those packages. But it is done now so all is well.

One more block in the 12" size and then I can start on the center medallion.

  7. I'm loving the blocks I've seen so far. Ooooh, quit tempting me to start something new!

  8. Wow! That's cool. How did you machine stitch it - with the clear poly thread and blanket stitches? Or some other way? It looks really well done. :D
