I have been out straight this month and today I looked at the calendar and realized it’s the last day of August and I never shared Chapter 8 with you all. The pattern went out to subscribers on the 15th as usual, so please email me if you didn’t receive it (firstname.lastname@example.org)
My diary entry for August is Do More Than is Expected. It’s rather self explanatory but I do challenge myself and push for a little extra rather than just enough. I try to exceed my original goal if that makes sense. This is part two of a three part saying – (1)Learn More than is required (2)Do More than is expected and the third part will be saved for September and Chapter 9.
I adore these large quilt blocks and the applique dots make them pretty whimsical, don’t you think? When I made my circles, I left the paper template in place in place while I appliqued, and then I back-stitched around the applique circle using pearl cotton before turning to the back of my work and cutting away the bulk and removing the paper.
