...but not because I have been ignoring this project...I've just been working on preparation of the whole quilt as I did for GJ and TTS and that takes a lot of time...all the backgrounds have been cut...the small squares are residing in their ziplock baggies and the sashing strip pile is growing nicely. I was going to blanket stitch the applique blocks but while wandering through some books, looking for something not at all related to SKoW, I chanced upon really good instructions for a method I knew about but haven't tried before - back basting - so I am now tracing all the designs on the back of the background fabrics then I want to prep them all so that I can simply pick up and go to stitchy group and take along a block all ready to be stitched...once all the prep is done the actual applique stitching should fly along nicely (well in theory anyway)...my usual methodology is the turn and baste method anyway so same amount of preparation but I should get a nicer finish (again, in theory).
Happy New Year to everyone...next time, pictures! (again, in theory)...
PS I logged in to write this post and see that the previous one is from Chooky...I go to the reader to see what she had written and oh oh, the whip is cracking...those vibes to get a progress report up must have gotten through! That whip sure does its job!!
