|I had some time this weekend to take a look at my Afternoon Delight Block of the Month pattern. The first month of the BOM has us making two pieced blocks and four applique blocks.|
I decided it would be a good idea for me to cut all 40 of the applique backgrounds from my fat quarters before I start chopping them up for the pieced blocks. I cut two eight inch blocks from each fabric. These will be trimmed down to the finished size after the applique is done.
|I'm not going to only do two of these blocks. |
There are nine of them in the pattern and I will cut and sew all of them now while I have all the fabrics out on the cutting table. This block is going into the center of my quilt.
|I've got a good start on the remaining eight and may take them along to quilt camp tomorrow, although I do worry about using my Bernina to finish them after mostly piecing them on my Juki. I guess we'll see how that goes.|
Off to finish packing!
