Since I’m finding myself with dedicated hand sewing time (I take one of my grandsons to speech therapy twice a week) and my Hexie project is pieced, I thought I might finally get back to this top.
I purchased these blocks sometime before 1997. I know this because I remember which house we were living in. They came with this little copper template, ideal for use with a rotary cutter to cut background pieces.
The seam allowances on the flowers are about 3/8 of an inch, less than I’d like, but I felt I had to keep going with that.
It seems that I get most tired of a project about 2/3s of the way through and this was no exception. I haven’t touched it in ages. Encouraged by my progress on the last hand piecing UFO I finished, I picked this up again. Here I am now.
I have no idea how I will finish the edges on this. I hope my current momentum on this will continue. Have a great day!
