Last week husband and I were in West Virginia. Lots of fun train rides, coal mines and other sites.
These old steam engines fueled by coal were so much fun to ride.
A ride down to the river for a jet boat trip. Do not look down!
And a tour of a coal mine. This was not a place you want to work.
Once home I really got busy working on my newest appliqué project.
So block #3 is complete. This project is so fun picking out the different fabrics.
Block #2 done as well this week. I think in the end I will be trimming the blocks down to a smaller size. Right now they are 20.5 inches square. I think bigger than needed. But I will wait until all are done to make sure what size I can trim them down to.
And of course block #1. I can see already trimming these will be a bit of a challenge. They each end up placed a bit differently on the backgrounds. The pot on the bottom of the backgrounds are all placed exactly the same, but then things differ a bit. I have used the lay out as directed, but obviously the patterns are not perfect or maybe its me. Never the less, the project is fun and in the end I am pretty sure I will get them all trimmed and together into a quilt top that works.
