Gossip Time

Last weekend I had a big run on piecing for Gossip in the Garden.

Marking up all the periwinkle star pieces with dots for joining.

Pinning and piecing.

Laying them out on my bed (must get a design wall!)

Part 4 all finished.

These periwinkle stars were a pest to make but it was worth it in the end.

And a couple tucked away for a later section.

Then it was onto Part 5. I just love all the block names.

A bit of starch always helps.

Shoofly block

Another shoofly block - same layout but  what a difference!

Nice colour combination.

Fork pins - another favourite tool.

Patch star variation block

Good ole Nine-patch

Pieced squares

 And I finished one of the stitchery phrases.

Well I'm up for another weekend of sewing, off to my sister's today and then an Appliqué Guild meeting at Kaye's on Sunday. Hope you have a great weekend too!

  14. Are you following a pattern, or making it up as you go? I guess I could go back through the posts to find that out.
