    OK, what about a zigzag? I would audition some possibilities with a clear vinyl sheet and a marker.

    No biking today. In The Netherlands you can get a railroad card with an additional subscription which gives you 7 days free traveling. Every two months one day and one day extra in a year. So I thought I still had my yearly day which I would have to use before May 28th. Turned out I already used that day!! So no free train ride for me today.
    My bi-monthly day will be used coming Saturday on a trip with my brother

    Instead of my biking trip I might go on a FART today I need more background fabrics. Today more fabrics will arrive in the mail. I purchased more KF fabrics. Will show them later today.

    Oh Anael, I love the trees in your MSW. Very nice addition.

    Pretty Kaffe fabrics. I do love his sense of color!

    Ok, I love your tiny minis. Have you thought about quilting Stars in the sky. And, at the bottom, maybe a zigzag to signify grass.

    I'm probably the worst person to make suggestions. I am a horrible quilter. And, I have major issues committing to a quilting design.

    They are both very special and pretty.

    Anael, pretty flowers. You have such a nice flair for color.

    Thanks ladies. No OK, machine applique. I'm using wash away applique sheets, glue the seam allowance with sewline and sew them on.

    Anael, is that a baby with her? Striking color on the face of the duck. It looks like the sun was shinning beautifully.

    I love how your bright flowers are coming along. They look beautiful on the gray background.

    Thank you! I missed you peeps! The move went smoothly...new home construction starts next week. Trying to get organized in workshop/RV but I took delivery of a new washer/dryer today so all is good! Lol.. We are trying to decide where to set up my sewing nook. I'm eager to get back into sewing soon....I've got 2 Kingwell patterns on the list that are ready to go..

    Lol...a LA when house built. When that is set up, I don't want to move it. Lol... So....GW or Bring Me Flowers..not sure yet. I have other patterns, too, on my list that are kitted up and ready. So many choices... I'm just going to grab one and go for it.

    I love the Bring me Flowers quilt but it's all curved piecing and that's holding me back.

    When your LA is set up I'm going to move in with you LOL

    I've been working on My Small World this week. Here are my blocks so far.Name:  my small world blocks.jpg

    Now I'm working on the triangle blocks - some are roofs, some are skinny hourglasses, etc. I am having an awful time getting them to measure 2.5" unfinished without chopping off corners when sewn. I'm now thinking of paper piecing them. Does anyone have any suggestions before I draft a paper pieced block? Did any of you use templates, and if so which? My Marti Michell ones don't appear to be the right angle.

    I like your blocks!!
    I use the templates from the book. Still it's hard to get them to size. Most of the time you have to use a scant 1/4" seam and sometimes 1/4".....

    Thanks, Anael. I ended up appliqueing them, which wasn't that bad. If I had to do more, I think I would paper piece.
