I've signed up for my first block swap. Of course I procrastinated and only have a month to complete. It's called the Angel Baby block swap and is coordinated by Sindy at FatCatPatterns.com. They are sooo adorable!! Sindy has some great applique blocks available. You can find out more about the pattern here and sign up for the swap by being a member of the Scratching Post Yahoo Group I signed up for 8-10 blocks.
So far, I have the off-white background cut to the 10.5" blocks. Last night I was working on the fusible web tracings. I'm going to use the lighter Steam A Seam2. I had two packs of 8x11 sheets and I was dreading tracing all the pieces for 10 Angel Babies. Finally last night it hit me. Trace once and cut multiple sheets... duh So I traced two sets of Angel Babies and attached 5 sheets of fusible web and pinned each piece for cutting. I also traced the four different sets of wings on 4 sheets of fusible web. Now the only thing left to trace are all the extras if wanted - hair, flowers, etc.
Thanks for stopping by
