|Pushin' Up Spring Block 3|
I've been washing a lot of kitchen items over the past couple of days. Items that looked clean when packed 3 years ago, are showing their grimy spots after 3 years in a hot/freezing garage. Since we are making an inventory for DS2's move, we decided to clean everything that needed it so they don't have to do it while unpacking.
Now off to prepare block 4 for applique. I love the "back basting" method of applique, but don't use it exclusively. My method depends on the final use of the item - I still do satin stitch applique on fused fabric, from time to time, as well as "invisible applique by machine" using monofilament thread and a tiny blind hem stitch.
I also hope to get one of my waiting quilt tops basted tomorrow, before finishing another baby quilt for my guild's community quilts group.
