I had already stitched the flag with the blue ground/13 appliqued stars, that I think was really 'due' this month...
Because it was already done,
I went ahead and stitched this block this month:
(it is 'assigned' for next month, so I'm ahead again! :)
I laid out my blocks:
|I'm still auditioning colors: the center medallion
is laid in, unfinished, |
as I've not chosen reds for those corners.
The block directly below that
with the chunk of red fabric on the cream, unpressed fabric -
that's the missed block from months ago.
a striped flag with blue ground and circle of stars
(that gets placed toward the bottom, center).
That means I'm behind again... :)
Because I'd decided to individually finish and quilt each block
in the Hot Pad* or Pot Holder* method,
I've been working towards that quilt-the-blocks-goal,
so here are a few pictures of my blocks in quilt-y progress:
|Knife-edge finished blocks pinned together awaiting whip-stitching.|
holding the block corners to the other blocks?
That's how I pin to position the finished blocks-
so they are ready to pick up and whip-stitch together
whenever I have a little stitching time.
I've shared previously and you can read about it HERE, and HERE.
I'm linking with Lori, of Humble Quilts;
she has pictures/links to other participants in the sew-along if you'd like to see their progress, too.
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Winter Stitching!
