I've been working away on my 3 major projects (yes there are more tucked away)
Block #1 of my Antique Wedding Sampler is coming along...
I have added the 2nd fabric border to my Auntie Green (I'm using a different fabric for each of the 3 borders)...
...and marked out the appliqué and auditioned fabrics for the stems and leaves.
I have also been working on block #14 of my CCCQ. I learnt a different way of doing stems from Di Ford so thought I would give this method a go.
|Cut the fabric on the diagonal|
|Fold in half with wrong sides together.|
|Mark stem lines, down the centre of where the stem will lie with a pencil.|
|Lay the stem along the pencil line (on the inside curve if any) and sew a running stitch 1/8" from raw edge, using double thread.|
|Then fold over and slip stitch down this side. I tucked in the leaves as I came to them.|
Good luck with your WIPs!
