He is making a face because he hates the flash! Guess who is sewing? This is his 2nd sailboat block.
I was trying to steer him toward a large nine-patch or something, but no such luck! He loves a sailboat pattern. At least it had a checkerboard segment, but look how tiny the pieces are!
We went to Marden's and these are the fabrics we came home with, plus we are adding a bit from my stash. And we aren't 100% sure we will use everything he got... but he does want to make it bigger than the pattern, so we just might need all of it!
I need help! The next few blocks are applique. My machine has a nice blanket stitch (yeah!) so I am thinking we can fuse the fabric down and applique around the pieces, but what kind of fusing is the softest? He doesn't want it to get "crunchy". We are going shopping later this week so if I know what to get, we can move onto the next blocks. Still a few sailboats left to go, plus I think I will encourage him to make a some "filler" blocks to help make the quilt big enough to cover him... but those scary applique blocks are coming. Please let me know what you recommend! Thanks!
