This week has flown by and I've accomplished very little in the Studio. It's been one of those weeks that I seem to just run around chasing my tail and never really doing anything that's worth sharing on the blog.
So now comes the issue of how will I chose one person to feature for Podunk Pickin's. To be fair I decided to let the Random Number Generator do the work.
It chose Kath@HillsideHouse. She shared an amazing project designed by Erin Russek called Mimi Bloomers. Hop on over to Kath's blog to see her outstanding handwork. After doing a little research I found that all the monthly blocks are still available for free download on Erin blog, click here. However the center block needs to be purchased here.
Why not automate the part of your life you can? So you didn't have time to visit everyone. Things happen. And the one it chose at random was one of the ones I liked too! Win-win!ReplyDelete
That was a nice surprise, thankyou! I have actually been working on that centre panel today, sitting quietly in the conservatory, with my husband, listening to an audio book, stitching away.ReplyDelete
I would encourage anyone wanting to try applique (it was my first experience of applique), to chose this quilt. Erin shows numerous tutorials, which are really helpful and that's how I learned. I started with the 4 corners, the baskets, thinking they would be the hardest, then if I still liked it, I'd make the rest. Today I trimmed all the border blocks down to 9.5" and my heart was in my mouth for fear of the rotary blade slipping!
