Took the Block APART!

Today was a good day. I went to the Mt. St. Helen's quilt group. There I was able to get my block appliqued. The best part - I'm getting closer to getting these blocks done!


Still have a few more things to applique on here, plus do embroidery, but it's close to being done.

I came home early because we had an eye appointment. Then fixed supper. Phil called and said she would be here tonight, so I decided I would let him use my sewing machine to make a belt. We had a good time while he was here. I stayed down there with him working on the last block of the Affair of the Hearts.


This is what I HAD. I didn't like it, and I was talking about it at the group today. I told a couple of the women there that I wasn't going to take it out. It was off center and I was going to just leave it alone. YEA RIGHT! I got home, pulled it out and still wasn't happy with it. I figured I'd NEVER get it done if I didn't take it apart.


At first I was going to redo the colors of the other part I didn't have done. Then I pulled out all my bags of scraps from the other blocks I made. I then decided on what colors I wanted where.


I started out with one section, and ended up doing them all!


I used the freezer paper (for printers), and cut out the pieces. Then I picked what I wanted. I had them all done, then went and took all those pieces above out. YEP, I ripped, ripped and ripped them all out. Had to get all the threads out of the fabric. Picking all that is a major pain! So, now I can mark the block again, and start putting the pieces back on. I just hope I can get my hearts to work this time!

As you can see, I'm back to being Happy Quilting!

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
