I'm on my last block, and I'm loving it.
Have you all noticed how pointy this months blocks are. Well I've been struggling. With fray, and awkward points.
I decided to move on to the curvier pieces. And the points were getting better.
But after last nights sewing group tip, of using a toothpick. WOW, those little points are losing and I'm winning. After posting on Instagram and Facebook, a few people asked for a video tutorial, my friend Wendy, found a blog step-by-step, hope it helps.
Well done Sonia...those stars are goig to drive me crazy Im sure...loving your colours - so fresh!!
They look very pretty.
Wow they look amazing x
Thankyou ladies, I'm itching to start April already but resisting.
Love the colours and thanks for the YouTube tip. I attended a class on needle turn appliqué a few years ago. We were given lots of amazing tips - including the use of the tooth pick. I haven't done enough since then, so a refresher would be great. Thanks so much.
yay for having March done! Love your color choices.
Love your blocks - the fabric is just stunning. Adore the scrapbook layout too.
well done Sonia........the blocks look great.......goodluck with the points........
Love your colours... so fresh. Yes I looked at this months blocks last night and was aghast at all the points.... good practice I guess!
Hi Sonia, I love your blocks, the colours are amasing. Your work is so creative. I have to admit, I got stroppy with my star points too, I use the glue method and stuck down, struggling a little. Leep up the good work, I am so looking forward to seeing your finished quilt. Meg
Thanks Ladies. :)
Love your fabrics...ha ha I can so relate to the moving on from the pointy option...I did exactly the same thing at sewing group this week, took out the pointy ones, looked at them for a minute - and stitched the pears!...thanks for the toothpick tip, will be looking into that one...
