July RSC is BLUE and other stuff
July is blue, probably the most frequent color in my stash. Coming up with 33 different blues was no problem whatsoever.
I have the hour glass blocks already completed that will join the blocks as well as the border blocks -----soooooooooo, one good day of sewing and I should have this top completed.
In August, I will be taking a machine quilting class from Linda Hungerford (Flourishing Palms blog) and she has offered to give us ideas for quilting patterns for our projects. I can hardly wait to see what she suggests for this quilt!
The blocks are all hand pieced using English Paper Piecing and I am tempted to hand quilt the top, but I am still handquilting my Dresden plate Irish Chain, so I need to either get busy and finish hand quilting that one, or just machine quilt the Star of Bethlehem.
The only thing I am not doing that the instructions say to do, is using glue on my fabric. I just have never gotten comfortable with putting glue on fabric, so going with pins and in some cases I quickly thread baste pieces together before I sew them.
So sad....I get attached to my sewing tools.
Thanks for stopping by,
