|CQJP 2014 April Block by Renee|
Here is how it looked before I began stitching:
I loved the idea of a block done primarily in blue and yellow, as I have seen a few that were simply gorgeous. However, once I began, I found working on this block to be a challenge.
If you follow my TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) posts, then most of these seams probably look familiar. My favorite seam is the one on the lower-right corner. Incorporating the TAST stitches into the seam work was actually a lot of fun. When I felt particularly stumped as to what to do next, I turned to the list of TAST stitches on Sharon Boggon's blog Pin Tangle to jump start the gears in my head and grind out some ideas.
Now, I am off to can some strawberry honey jam, cook 2 whole chickens on the BBQ (we have a Traeger, so they will be smoked - yum!), and try to carve out some time to work on my CQJP 2014 May block.
Thanks for stopping by!
