I really shouldn’t even be sewing. Jim is leaving tomorrow and I am squeezing in thirty minutes here and there.
I finished assembling the half square triangle star, and then I pinned it to the wallhanging over my computer. It’s exactly the right size now.
But I’m not happy with it. It looks unfinished. Of course it isn’t finished, but it’s bugging my eyeballs to look at it.
Out with EQ! Whatever would I do without this software? Placing appliqués in the software is a bit of a hassle, so I laid out the top and your imagination can fill in the rest. Of course my quilt isn’t all solid red… it would look better if it were, but I think I’m going to add this border and the appliqués.
Which will make my wallhanging forty by forty, once again too big. Doh!
These borders and appliqués are just laying there, and the border fabric will be trimmed down a half inch (I tore it off the bolt) but I think with a red binding I will be happy with this.
