WIP Wednesday 6/12


Its another WIP Wednesday.  I got a lot done the past two days!  I am completely caught up on the BOM over at One Piece at a Time.  Actually scratch that.  Almost completely.  I still have a applique block that is almost finished. A few of the leaves need to be stitched down still and there are red berries that go on the ends of the three flowers.  I am still debating on the vase.  I actually found some fabric I like better but I also had the idea of doing some decorative quilting on it when it came time to quilt.  I might wait to see how it looks when I have all the blocks done.  I am being really indecisive.  The next applique block is getting released in a few days so I need to get this one done soon.  


I also got another Dear Jane block done.  This is block A-8.  It was a super easy block.  I did it by paper piecing and I think it only took me about 20 mins.  Its actually a smidge too small.  I think I trimmed the paper too much.  It comes out at 4 7/8" or so instead of 5".  But I will make it work when it comes time to put the sashing on it.

The next few days I plan on doing one more block but my main mission is to find a new rotary cutter.  Mine gave out on me.  It locks open to cut but now when I push down to make a cut it snaps shut.  :(  But its served me well.  I have had it about 10 years and if I remember correctly it was my mom's before that.  I was looking at Olfa Splash 45mm Rotary Cutter or an ergonomic one.  I have bad hands and cutting a lot makes them hurt.  If you have any recommendations please share.  What I really want is an Accuquilt but its a bit out of my price range.

Today I am linking up to Freshly Pieced.  Head over to see what everyone is working on!
