If you have been reading my blog then you know how enthralled I have become with back basting applique.
I gave away the 12 centre squares at our Chinese Auction at quilt guild . Then just before Christmas...you know that time when everything is just about ready...you've done all your shopping, baking and decorating and you are just waiting for the actual Christmas time to begin......I got a little bored and decided I needed something to do by hand. So here we are!
I worked out of my stash...except for the sashing and cornerstones. I had originally bought a gold fabric for the first top and ended up using it piece meal on other things...so I went to the Fabric Cupboard in Moncton...my "go to" shop when I want something specific and got another to replace.
Since I had the implants after cataract surgery I now do applique with glasses on and holding the work at a very comfortable position(using my applique pillow as well) ...no more shoulder pain, no headaches and I can see the work so much better......BONUS! Now on to another applique quilt...a BOM....I just have to find the patience to wait for each pattern to come in at the first of each month. Oh well...I could always get cracking on my 2017 Row by Row.....or my 150 Canadian Women...or my Canada Mystery quilt...or my wolf kit....and well you get the picture.
