Welcome Home, block 58
November 28, 2018
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Whether you spent it with family by blood or choice (or maybe a quiet day by yourself at home quilting!), I hope you were able to enjoy the day. My day was spent with family and friends and all the traditional foods. Every year I try to add something new on the table that we haven't tried before. This year it was roasted Brussels sprouts. While I didn't think I would be a big fan, they actually weren't too bad.
The QuiltMaker 1,000 BOM applique block went in the mail last week. This month the block was Welcome Home designed by Jenifer Dick of 42 Quilts. You can visit her website here.
I did my block needle turn. While I still wouldn't win any awards, I think my technique is slowly improving. I've learned I need to leave a little more to tuck under than I think I should. That's OK, I'm improving and that's all that matters...
Everyone in the applique club is doing needle turn right now, so that is how I did my tips and tricks video. Definitely a challenge to do when the pieces aren't cut out already...hahaha...
