After completing my June block for the crazy Quilt Journal and Bead Journal Projects, I went to my stash to get out the new muslin I had ordered for foundation piecing... and discovered that it wasn't muslin! It was a quality cotton quilting fabric with a pattern, however faint, and I wasn't about to cut it up for foundations, no matter how desperate I was to get back on track! So I decided to pull out "Roll Your Own" again, and work on the outline for "Jan". Despite a few bouts of frogging due to tangled threads, I did make progress:
And today, I went to the quilt shop, bought some "real" muslin (and a few pastries from the coffee shop next door!) and came home to post this wrap-up. Hopefully I will squeeze in some block designing this afternoon, between stages in two papercrafting challenges, one ow which is due Wednesday and so HAS to be worked on...
