I have finished all my unfinished projects and am wanting to start something new. I know I have gotten into a rut and now is the time for me to jump in and try something new. The only applique quilt I’ve done is the Sunbonnet Sue too many years ago. I am now looking thru my books to see what I have. Any suggestions? Hubby is planning on vacation and I will be spending a lot of time in the car(trip is from Glacier Nat. Park in Montana to Arizona) and I like to have something to do while riding. I figure I can cut all the pieces before I go and put each block in a baggie and in a month’s time have a few done.
I decided one thing I needed were some new scissors and I fell I fell in love with them. Stainless steel tailor shears and are so light and sharp. I usually purchase Singer or Fiskers. These were on sale and then Christmas in July another 20% off. The shears started out to be $88.22 on sale for 74.99 then 20% off was under 59.99 plus tax. I then got some applique scissors and spent less than the original price of scissors. I am one happy camper. I got these from my sewing machine store and they will replace them if anything goes wrong. I like this.
Where do you get most of your supplies? Box store? Quilt store?
Any suggestions on a pattern for next project?
Have a great day.
