Happy Monday morning! Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. It was sunny and just down right gorgeous all weekend. I finally managed to get outside yesterday long enough to mow the grass and plant some annual flower seeds. Then it was back to the studio for tons of pressing. All that's left is a few more scalloped swags. By making the bigger applique pieces last it seems to trick my mind into a faster finish line. Do you have a method to your quilty madness?
The scalloped swag just tickles me pink! So cute. All the applique except for the swags were made from the scraps of the Glorified nine patches. I'm using washable school glue to hold the pieces together before adding to the quilt. Here's a great tutorial for pre assembly applique.
In the tutorial Erin is using Roxanne's basting glue. I used this until the bottle was empty and then added washable school glue to the bottle. Works great and it's cheaper!
Today I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday. This is one of my favorite places to go for quilt inspirations. And Judy is quite the blogger, posting three or four times a day about everything from quilting to farm animals. Her canning and dehydrating posts are some of my favorites also. So hop on over and take a walk around I promise you won't be let down. She also has tons of FREE patterns!
