Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had an enjoyable day. It’s been sunny in my little world, making me a very productive happy stitcher. I had the good foresight to do some cooking earlier in the week so that I could do some sewing and prep work during the days.
Since my latest finish, I have concentrated on prepping some new blocks for my Moving Forward project …..
I even managed to flash up my sewing machine to piece a Dresden Plate Block today. This will be included in my Moving Forward project. I love piecing Dresden Plates. Very easy block to piece but rather effective. The most difficult part of this block was choosing fabrics. Once I chose the fabric I traced the Dresden blade template and rotary cut the shapes …..
And then I did some chain piecing …..
You will note that I press guideline in my background fabric in an X shape in order to help me centre my Dresden Plate …..
Here’s a little sneaky peek with the centre covered up with the fabric circle …..
I will tack the Plate in place and eventually do the fine hand appliqué stitching to secure the patches in place. I love a good old Dresden fix.
It’s been a lovely day in my little world. I got a sneaky peek at my Sarah’s designs. She’s doing so well. Since getting an exceptional grade for her dissertation, she seems to have found a whole lot of inspiration. I hope she’ll do well in life. For Sarah, the sky’s the limit. She just needs to keep putting the hard work in.
So, that’s my report for today. I hope you all have a fabulous evening doing some creative. Until next time,
Let’s all keep on stitching
