Yesterday I ripped open that setting kit for my Lavender Mist quilt and was super excited to put a top together.
And I kinda glanced at the directions and saw applique pieces...what?
After further reading and some head-scratching and grumbling...
14 circles (with a template cut twice because there wasn't enough fabric to cut 14 the correct size) and 40 petals (cut twice because the first size, though squeezed out of the fabric given, were too large to fit onto the block) later, I was ready to work on cornerstones.
They're about 5" square.
12 petals down.
(See those unfinished ones? That's the size they should end up - even those don't fit on the block without catching corners in seam allowances!)
I thought this would be a quick finish and the trimming of the applique blocks down to size would be the hardest part.
Poop on JoAnn's for this kit. It's been nothing but trouble. But this kit won't stop me from shopping there...it WILL keep me from buying any more kits of theirs.
And, it's been a month since the book sale, so I'm gonna keep going with the book stack photos!
The bottom of that blue sticky note is where the top of the stack was just a month ago. Not having a job (and being on vacation) gave me lots of time to read. Hopefully I'll have a job soon and the stack will last longer!
