Good Morning Quilters!
I have a different UFO on the design wall today - Benjamin Biggs Wedding quilt. The appliqué on this quilt will help me with my sewing skills. I am using several methods, and am going to see what method works best for me. I found out that one of you (Chris) See her blog post here is going to join me in finishing this UFO. Any one else have some Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt blocks hidden away somewhere?
Here’s the design wall now, with a picture of the whole quilt in the block #4 space. (And, no, I still haven’t found where I put the prepped pieces for block #4).:
Here’s a closer look at blocks #6 and #7, which were completed recently:
I used a freezer paper (3 layers) pattern for the stem circle on block #7, with starching and ironing the fabric over the pattern. This circle worked out well, so I decided to work on other blocks with circles next, and re-use my pattern. This week I am working on two blocks that are almost the same. Block #25 and block #9. Here is my progress on #25……I am using back basting on the four flowers:
Here are pictures of the two similar blocks from the original quilt:
I thought it would go faster if I made these two blocks at the same time. We shall see. My only appliqué speed right now is slow. But with practice……I think that my speed will improve.
