    I'm having fun with the Row by Row, I'm doing some creative stuff with my embroidery machine, so that is good learning. Today I learned how to get it to start in the middle of the pattern - for when the thread breaks and you have to go back and fix stuff. First time I've had to do that so I had to look it up in the manual to figure it out.

    Almost all of the "rows" I have, have some applique, and two are all applique. I'm doing satin stitch or blanket stitch so no turned edges. I've got most but the two applique ones done. I've got all the parts cut out but have not ironed them on yet.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Anael, more great blocks for GTSB. Sorry the cold weather has kept you in. But, good for us to see what else is new.

    MacyBaby, sounds like you are having fun. You sound like you are slowly bonding with your new machine.

    Ooooooooooo....so pretty, Anael! Soft and cuddly looking. I'm loving the colors of your GTSB. Let me know how the applique sheets work out. Never heard of them but I'm game if it gives the same results and is less stiffness. I really hollow out my stabilizer pieces but if water soluble, that would be way cool.

    Looking forward to seeing you RBR, Cathy.

    I'm down to just 2 applique blocks to go...Here is what I accomplished today..

    You guys are going to town with these blocks...I feel I'm at a standstill...I have started a new quilt, but in country colors. When I got home from work, I noticed how badly I need to water flowers so had better get that done soon! Sewtime later.....

    Thank you, Judith...poofy is good!!

    OK....I had to dead head my roses and trim geraniums today...plus, I cleaned toilets, which is always a priority. Lol.. We always seem to squeeze in a few stitches regardless of our chore list. Pretty blooms are a priority to me, too. It all balances out even tho we'd rather be sewing...

    The sheets are quite expensive but I thought the same Teen, if it means less stiffness.........

    Your Igloos look way better than mine! I think I should have hollowed out all the pieces instead of only the centre circle.
    I will take a picture of the applique blocks I made these past two days.

    Looking forward to seeing what you've done Cathy!

    Here's section 2 of Long Time Gone. The second Dutchman Puzzle block is almost identical to the first one even though I picked the triangles without looking because I wanted to avoid just that
    Pictures still huge and no, I didn't iron the blocks haha!

    Beautiful section Anael. It is coming along fast. You must have loved the fabrics you picked the first time around to pick some of them again.

    I've never been a huge pink person. More a blue. But, your sure selling me on the pink. I love your pink sashes inbetween.

    I love almost every colour except brown. I do have browns but only because I made a Dear Jane in the orinigal colours.

    Anael...that looks fantastic.....I'm with OK....pineapple blocks are so pretty...but so are the churn dashes....goodness, I can't pick a fav. Great job..

    i don't care for brown, either. That's my hardest colorway to figure out. I've got to be in the right mood for Browns.

    The Courthouse Steps block is perfect for learning to sew straight and with a scant seam. My block has a clear waist and is 1/4" too small on one side. Back to the machine and toss this one

    Anael...yes, I did. With the clamshell, you only need to turn the top, sides on shells on the edge, and bottom row. The hexi was a bit challenging to keep matched tips but it's doable, obviously. I just made sure to use ruler and cut stabilizer using template to ensure they came out the same size. Cutting out by hand is not necessary since there are no curves. You could still do the method then hand sew (Not)...jus saying...lol.. (Don't forget to hollow out the stabilizer on each of these blocks... I did a really thin edge of stabilizer on both and both blocks are pliable and scrunchy.)

    I cleaned today and only finished one block. The last block is the square Daisy block so I'll be finishing this up tomorrow and assembling the sections. I need to start the border so that will be my weekend project.

    Oh Lordy...I got impatient and finished the last block tonight . I seriously like how this block turned out but the green corners may draw the eye too much. Wished I'd use more of this fabric in the quilt. It appears in stems and such but I think it's so pretty. hind sight..I need to see in daylight then I'll decide.. Anael...you'll notice. I changed the center from a square to a circle. . Looked funky with a square in the middle with all these dots and it was a pain so...done with it. Lol.. Tomorrow...assembling...Yahoo!!
