I had big intentions to stitch the majority of Plain Jane without any marking at all, but you know how things don't always pan out the way we want them to. I think it was the busy fabrics, but whatever, I had to eat my words and keep marking for several blocks before I finally found my rhythm!

Now I'm just marking the rare curve, but it goes so much faster now that I can just stitch away without having to stop and mark out ahead of me. I've also got a good start on my applique blocks for the next border on the Muddy Creek quilt. I never worry about getting perfect circles and I'm especially unconcerned when it comes to this particular quilt. I want Muddy Creek to be a bit rustic and primitive looking. We'll see how that works out, but I'm giving it my best effort for now.*wink

Time to link up with Kathy's Slow Stitching Sunday again although I won't be browsing through the other links until later. My oldest daughter wants me to show her how to make a triple berry pie and I don't think I have ever turned down a piece of berry pie in my life! Hey, how about those Seahawks? lol
