Deciding to 505 baste a Dresden that spans around 40" and then machine applique it wasn't one of my finest hours and after some deliberation I chickened out and decided on the long route.
Just the thought of' all that whip stitching wasn't making me do a happy dance and then I read Charlotte's post and am dreading it even more now. Still it's going to look brilliant when finished ;-). I have self-imposed a deadline for the LMQG meet on the 7th July to have the top finished.
In a typical avoidance manoeuvre I decided to have a mess around with a couple of paper pieced blocks, with no particular purpose for either.
A whirling hexagon I found on Quilters cache. A few of these would make a lovely cushion.
And this geese block on a pinterest board, which I cannot find again. I have been known to say that there is no such thing as a ugly rainbow, I am taking that back with this block!
I love how this quilt is going to have all my favourite bits of fabric on it and I do love a circle ;-)
Right that Dresden isn't going to sew itself down....
