Another step on the way to finish the Happy House project from my Treasure Box is checked off the list. I have chosen to finish each block separately with loops for hanging. I’ll do them pillow case style with no binding. Thanks for all your suggestions, they were really helpful!
I have free motion appliquéd the motives with batting on the back, and here they are ready for the next step – cutting backings and sewing them together.
For the loops I have chosen a semi transparent ribbon. With all the ribbons available I still had a difficult time finding one with the right colour, with a suitable width and that would not be chunky. I’ll use the same method and ribbons for the Moo Points too. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish off all those little quilts in no time.
For those of you who are new to Zumba: it is a dance based fitness program. There are steps from salsa, samba, flamenco and lots of other fun moves to great music. Although it’s fast (really fast) it’s very gentle on your joints and gets your heart pumping like there’s no tomorrow. You all know how much I love my water aerobics class. Well, this is even better!
Over to something totally unrelated: Carla from Feathered Fibres has done a profile on me; pop over and have a look.
This is my 199th post; I have been holding back so that I have a chance of getting the giveaway items together for the 200th post on Friday. I’ll see you all back here then.-)
