Do you ever sew away on a project because that is what you want to be working on but feeling guilty because you know you should be working on something else?
Well, that is what I did last night. I know I should be working on the baby quilts but I just wanted to do some mindless applique. So I worked on the Tiger Lily quilt instead.
And . . .
That may be what I do this evening also.
And . . .
It was for the first part of the evening. I appliqued the rest of the blocks I had prepared. Then I resorted to cutting out the first of the baby quilts. Then as I cut the final pieces I realized that I hadn't used the focus fabric that I had purchased. So I figured out what I needed to recut and will start doing that tomorrow evening.
Then as I sat down to type this, I realized that the reason I had more red fabric than I needed was because I purchased a yard of both the red fabric and the focus fabric. I probably don't even need 1 yeard total. But now I don't have to worry about backing fabric. I think I have enough. I'll just piece it.
I did get the center block pieced and ready to embroidery. I usually embroidery before I piece, but since I am embroidering in a triangle instead of square or rectangle, I decided that having it already pieced will be easier to center and place where I want it.
This big square will be on point (not how I have it laid out here.) The full name will be in the center and other information will be in the triangles. More later.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.
