Another finished block. This one gave me some trouble. If I could stick to a pattern things would be easier but in true Lea Anne fashion.... changing it up to make it my own. Those blue and white flowers were my downfall. They started out pink and white, then pink and blue, finally the 3rd times the charm, blue and white.
Here's the original pattern. The little cup reminded me of the Kool-aid man. It had to go.
So I folded the paper in half traced the cup in reverse in order to make the raw edge applique.
Here's the next little cutie. I'm thinking about using fabric for the little musical note flags. (is that what they are called?) Since they are so tiny maybe a heavier fusible could be used with no stitching around them, whatcha think? It's about time to make a layout plan in EQ with some simple patchwork joining all these blocks. If your interested in any of these patterns you can find them here on pinterest. I'm becoming a pin-o-holic. It's where I save inspirations and ideas. Much better than the old way of bookmarks or pictures on the computer or flash drive.
Slowly but surely on the big pink quilt.
I could have popped this out in a day had my back been more cooperative. Thanks for all the well wishes from my faithful readers. I'm doing better but not turning cartwheels yet. Yes I can still do them! Maybe not as pretty or graceful as when I was a teenager but I can do them, that's all that matters. Not a pretty site I'm sure.
