I will start this weeks post with my "Nearly Insane" block of the week. This is block #36 and measures 6" and has 78 pieces. 31 more to go!This is the last of the "Applique Affair" wool blocks. Now I have to trim all 45 blocks and start putting them together. I'm not sure if I am going to do the borders according to the pattern yet. I may do my own thing.
I added the border fabric to my Angel's Story" top. I also finished piecing the backing using the string blocks I made.
I bought this new transfer paper from Treasured Threads at the end of last year and I have been wanting to try it out. It's pretty expensive so I wanted to try it with an intricate design. I dug out yet another UFO, The Polka Dot Girls. All you do is place your pattern in your copy machine, printer or scanner. Print it out on the transfer sheet. Peel the backing and stick it on your fabric. After you stitch you just wash away the transfer. I will let you all know how it works once I stitch it out. I sure hope this works, I am a terrible tracer.
I hope everyone has a healthy, blessed, quilty week.
