I could have pressed the darn thing before I took a picture, huh? LOL.
I started trying to figure out how to lay out the appliqued scallop border tonight, and I'm just too tired. I'll play with it on Sunday. Real ready to get this one to the quilter - so I can get the embellishments on it! :)
Tonight I figured out something else on applique. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've never used the Clover bias tape maker before. I bought every size that existed when I first started quilting, and I'm sure they're all packed up in one of those boxes in the garage. At the big quilt show in January I bought a couple of more. Then the pink/brown quilt needed a size I didn't have, so I picked up another one. Tonight was the time to figure out how to use them!
Boy, is that ever a snap! Much easier than using the bias bars! I made miles of vines tonight in like 55 seconds! Just a vine-making machine over here! I can't believe I've been doing it the hard way all these years! The story of my life!
