I was finally able to start Block 1 :)
I am finding that working with the wool and crazy patch layout is far more fun than I expected!
And then there is the applique, that has always has been a love of mine.
As I mentioned in a previous post I will be making my quilt into a stitched journal of my life, block 1 being my first 20 years....so we have a baby carriage and a birth date so far.
I also wanted to share a little tip...instead of using pins or basting to hold down the edges of the wool pieces and keep them in place. I used a fusible tape (sewable weight) underneath the edge of the wool. I did use steam in order to get the fusing agent to melt, being careful not to scorch the wool...you may want to use a pressing cloth over the wool when pressing if you use the fusible tape.
So far I haven't had any problems sewing through the fused edge and believe it will work just fine for my quilt.
Happy Stitching everyone!!
