You know when you go out and buy something that you just cannot do without? Odds are that you will find it that day or the next...well I now I get to return the iron I didn't use yet.
It is rather hard to do freezer paper applique without an iron as I am doing in the Snowbound Quilt Along. With a million boxes marked "Sewing Room" to go thru after the move I just knew I wasn't going to find it anytime soon and time was ticking away. So I went out and got a cheap one to get me thru....Bob found it that night when we digging in boxes. Yippy!
I was able today to get caught up on the Dixie Diary BOM from Barbara Brackman. I appliqued stars in the middles and used star fabric from the Metropolitan line. I think I will set them on point by making the block be the center of a square in a square block. Hoping the other fabrics in the collection will add more color this way.
