After a very busy 7/8 months I decided I deserved a prize and started another project; Esther Aliu’s Red Delicious Quilt. Her online shop is here. Esther has a Yahoo Group you can join if you are interested in her designs. Unfortunately the free BOM (Oma’s Blues) for this year has already begun but you can purchase components if you’re interested.
I’ve been trying to make some of my blocks with the Brother Scan’n Cut I got for Christmas but I have to say it’s been a steep learning curve and probably would have taken a lot less time if I’d tried to complete the blocks the old fashioned way. I will say I’m glad I didn’t have to cut some of the blocks the old fashioned way though, the machine definitely makes a difference on the tricky cutting once you get things sorted.
I’ve been working on these blocks for quite a few weeks now and of course I’m never satisfied to leave things alone and have changed some of the components!
I have a few days work coming up in the next few weeks so I’m expecting progress to be slow for a while.
