This week whizzed by with so much as a "How do you do?"
I blinked and it was Friday! There was very little slacking this week so I will blame the Snow Day on Monday for altering reality.
Thank goodness I was able to sneak some sewing in yesterday afternoon and also made a short video on a quick tip for tracing templates! The Orange Peel Template is from Fat Quarter Shop!
I decided to try the 3" template. I made this block with four very different colors of solid pink/red and appliquéd the pieces using my Bernina 440 QE and only one color of Aurifil thread. The one color of thread blended perfectly with all of the colors I chose!
When I went looking for my marking pen to trace the peel, I realized I had the PERFECT way to trace that did not require a pen or chalk at all!
My Dritz pattern wheel!
It is fast, easy and so far my kids have not taken it from me!
