Ya know, all these new tools I have blogged about (here and here), they are really helping me finish my hand work. Goodness, are they doing a great job at keeping my fingers from getting sore.
I can hand applique for long stretches at a time! I'm talking until I get tired of it and/or need a change of scenery!
I no longer need to take a break in order to give my fingers time to heal! Yea, I'm on a roll! ;o)
Penelope has also had a tire change, those new M & M wheels I bought at VQF! DH finally set aside some time to change them.
So, I needed a quilt top to take those new wheels for a test drive. Given that the blocks were all done and that it was just a matter of piecing the top, I was able to quickly finished this little quilt!
Yea, those new wheels make such a difference! Smooth!
You know, I really like that I used scraps for make the center of the quilt.
I'm slowly getting proficient at scrap usage!
It used to be that I could not work with anything smaller than a quarter yard! lol Now, I'm using up pieces as small as 1 1/2" and it's not in applique projects but actual piecing. And.... I actually enjoy it! lol
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace! Cheers!
