Working on Block 2 here. Its got pear trees..... dragonflies.... butterflies and a bunch of really cute snails. Unlike the real snails I find in the garden I won't be flexing my throwing arm and hurling them half way across the neighbouring field. Before you say it.... I know they'll just come back coz their home is here with us but I live in hope they'll find some greener grass and decide to relocate.
I had loads of lovely fiddly bit's to cut out and play with (and occasionally cuss at). I'm using Ricky Tims Stable Stuff and a fabric glue pen. The stable stuff is designed to be left inside the quilt... seemingly it softens to fine poly fibres when the quilt is washed. I'm more than a bit nervous I can tell you. There are so many tiny applique pieces in this project I'm going to be terrified to wash it for fear they'll all fray and fall off! Oh me of little faith. Maybe I can learn to live with a 'stiff' quilt..... hummmm.
