Well I've gone and done it. Reached for a few new projects with no hope of finishing all the other works in progress anytime this month this spring.... soon. How did I manage to get so sidetracked by this little blanket stitch?It started innocently enough. I could manage that stitch much better than a hidden applique stitch for the center of my giant hexy quilt. I've done seven centers now (still have whatever half-hexes are left to fill it out),
I picked up the blanket stitch from a great little book, Sublime Stitching, which is not only eye candy, but loaded with great tutorials and patterns. I look at this book and I think "I WANT!"
You know, the cutest fabric roll came in the mail today. They called it a "cupcake" because it was smaller than a jellyroll. Strips of Freshcut from Heather Bailey. Think I'm going to abandon this hand sewing thing for a while and maybe start a new quilt top...
or maybe I'll just make cupcakes...that sounds good too.
