Sketch Book Challenge and BOM

I'm almost caught up with Dawn's BOM
"Folk Art Tribute"

Block One

Again, I'm only using what's in my stash. For Block
One I used the freezer paper on the back. I'm also
using YLI Silk thread for the applique. I love the
way the thread just blends in with the fabric.
The red fabric is Heritage Square by Kathy Schmitz
for Moda.

Block Two

For Block Two I'm using the freezer paper on top.
This is my least favorite method because I personally
find it harder.

For the cherries; I used Karen Kay Buckley's
Perfect Circles templates. I'd be lost without them.

I used Fusible Web for the star (-:
I had this fabric for awhile it's Blackbird Village
Quilts by Kathy Schmitz for Moda. I love it!

I then skipped Block 3 and went on to Block 4
because I wanted to do the weather vane first.

Block four

I decided to do the back basting method.
It was easier and faster for me to use this method
on this block.

I searched and searched through my stash to
find a fabric that would coordinate with what
I was working with. This was a fat quarter and
there was no name on it.

Block Three

Block Three is all cut out and ready to stitch.


Have you heard of the Sketch Book Challenge?
See my side bar----------------->

It will begin on January 1st and each month
there will be a theme.

As I already have......

Almost all of the supplies; I thought that I
would join in. It sounds like it's going to fun
and there will be tips, techniques and tutorials!
I could sure use those!
Hopefully I will also learn
how to be more organized.
