Good thing I'm not in a race - cause I would LOSE big time.
I am in this to enjoy it, and I'm winning.
Here's my cut out of the "waves" for the Hawaiian Quilt.
I have the sweetiest little Niece (she marred now but still little to me) and she says, in her sweet little sing-song voice: "I love blue, light blue, dark blue, teal, aquamarine",....on and on as she describes every shade of blue under the sun.
That is how I feel about this fabric.
I love every shade of blue in it.
I'm not going to hand applique this one. I thought long and hard about this. I had to explain to myself - that although Hawaiian Quilts are traditionally hand sew. I do not have that in me, my wrist and hands would hurt too much.
So I will be stitching this on the machine.
I'm thinking of buying applique pins so that I can pin it down nice & neatly.
(Usually I use Heat & Bond - Great Suff!)
