Today, I went shopping to buy a backing for My Favorite Thing Quilt. Once I had washed the backing and ironed it, I came to the realization that the clerk gave me 3 yards and 26 inches as opposed to 4 yards. Boy was I annoyed. Drove back to the shop, as I was determined to sandwich this baby today. I told her that I would take another yard and piece my backing. She insisted that I take another 4 yards. I watched her measure and I'm convinced there's something wrong with her unit of measument. She had a yard left and didn't even bother to give it to me for my troubles. Got home, measured it and it was barely 4 yards. By then I had no energy left to do anything with it. So, I poured myself a glass of wine and sat outside to enjoy the beautiful weather while I hand appliqued.
I managed to finish the Blue Bell Block from Baltimore Country Cousins BOM. I started this BOM last year in June with The Quilted Crow Quilt Shop. So far I have five (5) blocks done. I think there's twelve (12) blocks to this quilt.
As you can see I'm working on a few hand applique projects at a time. My hand basket always has a few squares ready to be tackled. I guess it's a question of what quilt I feel like working on!
After I sandwich the quilt, I'm hoping to get part 2 of the Wildberry vine done tomorrow. Both of these quilts are part of my UFO list to complete for the Stashbuster group.
I think I have way too many hand applique projects on this list. I may have to switch with other less time consuming quilts. It's not like I don't have other types of UFO hanging around!
