My Bessie Creek Road quilt is slowly coming along....
I hand pieced the centre star
and it's playing nicely with its neighbours.
All twenty of the hexie flowers are complete...
I have now also finished the circle squares...
made my way!
I pieced a four patch block and then ironed a freezer
paper template to the back,
cut it out with a 1/4" seam
and painted a thin line of Flatter, a spray type starch,
around the edge, before pressing.
|This Flatter spray smell amazing!|
This helps the seam to sit down flat for applique!
It was then time to see how the blocks were looking
This arrangement (above) is the square version, but
not the actual one, but shows most of the blocks
complete so far.
This is how the layout will look, except the hexie
blocks will be in the outer rounds.
Four more different designed blocks to do....
mostly hand piecing!
So lots of prep still to come!
