This is the book I chose for my November project - I believe I won this in a give away so long ago (or did some one send it to me?).
I was tempted by those star blocks on the cover, but chose this cute wallhanging.
I really wanted to do this in needle turn technique, but these fabrics were very slippery and ravely and just made me tear my hair out in frustration. So I changed to fuseable and a machine blanket stitch.
I managed to get this pin basted on Thanksgiving - I didn't travel or have quests - home alone to play. That's one of my drawers from my thread cart, ready for some walking foot and FMQ.
I got lucky - the two furkids decided this was the better place to nap and all of the quilting got done on Friday - well, all of it got done (wasn't sure I would make it folks).
I had cut all the pieces to make the border like in the pattern, but when laid out against the middle, it took over and you lost the cute flowers. So I just went with a scrappy mock log. The piece in the book is called 'Happy Flowers', but I called it Whimsical Flowers.
Remember we are taking a break for December - give you folks time for those gift sewing projects, food prep, and holiday
stress enjoyment. So there will be two names pulled for November. The Vintage Sewing Machine Pin and
The Sewing Angel and Rose of Sharon Charms
