Applique block done
Just completed my block for the group's raffle quilt, which will be ready before Christmas, hopefully. The block is one by Robert Callaham -"Hamstel Road Memories" - and I've done this a few times before, but always for someone else's quilt. One day, I've promised myself I'll do one for me! I'm really getting into hand applique at the moment. Since I went to a couple of talks, one by Shirley Bloomfield, and the other by Clare Kingslake, I've learned a couple of things that have improved my work, like using silk thread for the stitching, because it's pretty much invisible!
