Wellll, I had to re-do the beards and cut a second yellow dot hat. I'm using the back side of the beard fabric and I had gone on auto-pilot and ironed the fusible web to the wrong (incorrect) side.  And the yellow is nice and bright, but fairly thin so the top of the beard showed through.

Iron on some fusible interfacing, then a new piece of fusible web, then try, try again.

I had to do some trimming on the bodies on this one - the tops of the beards didn't seem to be the same shape as the tops of the bodies. Maybe I was just, er, challenged that day.

Oh, and somewhere between laying it on the fabric and picking up the iron, the "J" decided to let its personality show.  I'm not losing any sleep over it; it's not like I'm perfectly upright all the time, either!

Very cute Tracy. Love how "out of the box" this is. Can't wait to see it all come together in the end.

Mine is done, just trying to figure out my camera to get a pic.

Ummmmm maybe those guys have been partaking of liquid joy, hence the J being a tad wonky - I like it!!!

The retreat was lovely, weather was great (which was a good thing, since I forgot my jacket at home!).

I got a lot done, but very little accomplished. Undesided

This is what I got accomplished, though!

Tracy, blocks 3 & 4 are adorable.  Love them.


TX Mary,  your blocks are just as beautiful too!


I have block 4 done, but my tree is totally backwards!  Go figure!  I  WILL  NOT  REDO  THIS! 

I'm backwards, so my block can be too!

I would try to show a pic but when I try to load one it brings up a different pic that I've deleted!  Weird huh?   Not sure why it's doing that and neither does Gimpy.   And these are pics I've deleted months ago.  Thud

I will likely hang my finished Gnome quilt somewhere that I can see it year-round, but I'm having second thoughts about doing the BOO-tacular BOM. It's cute, and appeals to my 'get SOMETHING done' need, but... I don't really do holiday quilts (present project excepted), and I don't have the space to store something to be used only a few weeks a year.


(We won't talk about the multiple sets of holiday tree decorations that allow me to keep my tree up until April or May, mmmm'kay?)

Just two more days to download this month's block!  Also, if you're doing (or collecting) the Boo-tacular BOM, same story.

It's time to git 'er done.

Has everyone downloaded the new June block(s)?  I've got it in my email box, but haven't gotten any farther than that. With all the madness that was May - classes, retreat, weekend guild event, work... My sewing room looks like a(nother) bomb went off in it, and it's hard to justify adding to the mess with an applique-fabric-choosing activity.

It'll get better. As soon as I get my patoot in gear, that is.

I have mine fused. Since I was appliqueing 3 seperate things at one time I thought a fourth couldn't hurt! lol! I am glad it was a simple one.

Mine is fused Memaw but not sewn yet. But at least we are not behind yet, so I think we are doing good.
