attempting to get one more quarter of my appliqué round of my round robin done for this post. Seriously. I cannot get over how time-consuming and labour-intensive this appliqué is. I feel like I am doing something wrong.
Here it is as of last night. I took a break from it today.
It is all sewn down except for the pink flowers, the top stems, (and I know, the one on the left is a little wonky in one spot but it will be covered by a purple ball) and two of the leaves. I also am making the parts for the two remaining quarters as I go, so hopefully those last two will go relatively quickly, fingers crossed.
We had company today, but I did get in a couple of hours of sewing to work on the May Scrap-a-Palooza quilt. I now have 24 blocks done, which is where the 240 squares title of the post originates.
I'm loving all these blues, and reminiscing about the projects from whence they came. Quite an array.
As for the green dilemma, I went with Joanne's (Canuck Quilter) suggestion, looked for another green, and found one, a scrap from the first quilt I made one of my sisters.
I was feeling a little stressed today that I haven't got very far in these projects, and I haven't been as regular of a blogger. Then I gave myself a mental shake, and thought seriously? You are creating stress! So, although I do have a deadline for this round robin as well as the paint chip challenge, both due in mid-September, I need to chill-ax. There's no competition, no blog police! Right?!
