So this weekend I finally was reunited with my sewing machines. Lucy and Ethel hummed happily. Here is what I accomplished for Civil War Saturday.... I got the next block done, Parlor Activities. I know it's not a lot, but it's progress.
|Parlor Activities is a pretty straight forward block to make. My fabric choices are similar to Rosemary's.|
|I did notice this little 'glitch' with the foundation paper I printed up from the companion CD...|
|I drew in the extra little bit that was missing on the foundation paper that I printed up. A quick and easy fix!|
|Here you can see that I wrote in the fabric choices in each of the blocks so that I can easily keep track while I sew along.|
|I cut my fabric into easy to use strips....|
|Lining up my fabric for sewing....|
|I sew on the lines and a 1/4" past the lines to account for the seam allowance.|
|My two paper pieced sections are ready to be sewn together...|
