Not Much to Show For a Weeks Work

It's been a quiet end of the week here with the quilty stuff.  Pretty much all that's gone on is a little bit of time spent appliqueing these wobbly circles to the background fabric.
A little bit of hand work on Low Volume #2
Totally enjoying the low key fabrics mixed with the shirting type print background though!  Amazing how different fabrics can affect our moods isn't it?

Although most of my fabric starts out nicely folded in the storage totes, it usually ends up being stuffed, crammed and jammed back into them right after I go on a mad digging binge for fabric. Which means that I do have to iron my fabrics before I cut them out.  Everybody has their methods.  I'm not really a steam or starch person, so although I do actually use an iron and occasionally even a spritz of water, it's not terribly unusual to see creases while I work even though the fabric is perfectly flat.  The thing is, it always seems to quilt out in the end.*wink


  1. Fortunately, for me a lot of things quilt out! I like how this LV#2 is coming along. Pretty fabrics.

  2. One of my all time favorite phrases...It'll quilt out.
    Love the blocks!

  3. Looks like you got quite a few blocks appliqued - they look great!

  4. Sometimes it's nice to have a quiet week of hand sewing. Those circles are looking wonderful in LV fabrics. How big are the blocks?

  5. Yep - I start out all organised and end up with piles of fabric everywhere and things stuffed in places I didnt know existed so I have to iron too.

    I think you did very well for a weeks worth of work with that lot. Looking very cute!

  6. Love the softness of the LV blocks. It will be fun to watch your progress on this!
