I am excited to say that I am now only one chapter behind on this QAL. By the end of the month I will have chapters 10 & 11 done as well:) Yea!! I can see right where they will fit in. I really like these new blocks. I like how the “&” symbol combines the messages. In our family Faith in Jesus Christ is the center of our lives. So I changed the pattern from “Have Courage” to “Nourish Faith”. This will remind my daughter to always take care of the spiritual side of her life. True happiness and strength can never be achieved without that:)
The turning of the appliqué pieces was easy as well.
- I traced the pattern to the smooth side of a piece of fusible interfacing. Then I sewed it to the fabric with the sticky side facing the right side of the fabric.
- I clipped only the facing and turned it right side out using my handy cuticle stick.
- Now it had the sticky facing side on the back of the petal so I just ironed it to the block and sewed it down. Easy!
Chapter 9— I also love the message of “Be Kind”. The flower is so so cute!Because the circle and the petals were right next to the script, I opted to use fusible paper web for the appliqué. That way the block would all match.
I know it doesn’t really matter, but hey why not? I also think the complimentary colors of the blue and orange would really make this block pop:). Ok– I’m doing it!
Well, there you have it. Almost done now. SWEET!
