OK, yes I have lost my mind. After almost getting my Birds of a Feather completed after working on it for YEARS, and still working on my Wistaria Lane for ages I have decided to start this Block of a Month 2022 quilt offered by The Quilt Show.I bought the fabric kit. Given that there are 54 different fabrics in it and a pile of English paper piecing templates, which I have no intention of using, the cost of the fabric kit while hefty was not unreasonable.
In October I purchased this appliqué pattern and fabric kit at the Pacific Internation Quilt Show. So have decided to make a start on it.
The individual blocks finish at 6 inches. Oh my, those appliqué pieces are small. I have been experimenting with my favorite machine appliqué blanket stitch to get it very tiny. I will be using Sulky rayon thread with a neutral poly thread in the bobbin. I am playing with the bobbin thread a bit just to make sure that the stitching on the actual appliqués works well. This along with my BOM for 2022 are going to be long term projects.
