Well…with all the Christmas stuff going on, the shopping, the baking, and the get-togethers, it is hard to find any time to stitch. So I am stealing every spare moment I can to finish the last block of “Friends of Baltimore”. Here is the anchor prepped and glued in place.
Next, I had to decide how I was going to do the chain. First, I prepped and stitched the outside edge of the chain and drew the inside lines with a Frixion marker.
Then, I did reverse applique for all those tiny little holes in the chain.
Yesterday, we had a major ice storm and so we were all housebound, with not much to do. So I dug out the last four blocks of Friends of Baltimore…..
…and washed them…
… and trimmed them down to the proper size. You can read more about that here.
Next, I started to stitch together more of the half-square triangles that make up the sashing in between the blocks.
Here are the last four blocks stitched together in a row. Spiffy!
Merry, Merry Christmas Everyone….
