You know how it is, I had to get AROUND TO IT. Well, I have one:
A ROUND TUIT
There were 10 little blocks, an awkward number to work with. I decided to make a block with our name - "Sew Bee It" is the name of the group, a sub-group of the Tar River Piecemakers Quilters Guild (Rocky Mount, NC). I cut a freezer paper stencil with a single edge razor blade. The color was applied with a stencil brush - acrylic paint with fabric medium added. Then I made a pieced block of my own (the tulip in the basket).
I had already decided how to set the blocks together. NONE OF THEM were the same size! I had used this same scheme when I put my improv log cabin blocks together a couple of weeks ago. Over-sized strips are added to two sides of each block, they are pressed well, then cut to a uniform size. I love how it all turned out. Now, one more little project to quilt.
I hope that some of those special friends are looking in today and will see the progress I am making with their blocks. Thanks to: Dawn, Mandy, Terri (2), Gayle, Wendy, Angela, Kathy, Martha and Sandy.
