Oh no! Even using machine appliqué hasn't saved me from falling behind on Barbara Brackman's Hospital Sketches BOM!
The May block - Currants and Cockscombs - was a little intimidating. Forty-eight 5/8-inch circles to prep! Once all the pieces were prepped (freezer paper and starch method), I just needed some long stretches of uninterrupted time to stitch everything in place.
Fortunately, some of that time came my way this weekend. I stitched and listened to a wonderful audiobook: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
I highly recommend it!
Four blocks completed. The June block, Pineapple, should go more quickly. I already have the fabrics picked out, so I just need to make some patterns and I'll be on my way. Maybe I'll even finish before the end of the month and can start on July's block - Mountain Laurel.
Yes, I'm all about enjoying the appliqué process, but I don't want to get too far behind and run the risk of adding another UFO to the pile!
