I confess................

The tie was found and Morris had been falsely accused. I had actually cleverly hidden it from myself... But I found it the day before Cathy came so I was able to piece my second block for the Sharon Boggon workshop with my lovely tie as the inspiration colors.. As a beginning for my embellishment bag I have Theresa Rapstine's ribbon flower, Janet's trim, a great chenille rickrack I found in the barn, some yummy new ribbons purchased on Estsy... and a few other goodies....



I realize that with time I will get faster with Allie's "chunk, dump and clump" method but it took me the better part of an afternoon.

So for my second block I reverted to my usual paper piecing... also covered in Allie's book.


But since piecing is my least favorite part of the whole process and paper piecing is fast and easy (and mindless), I have used it exclusively since I started CQ.. Not only THAT I have to confess using the exact same pattern for every single block for all these years. I don't think anyone has ever noticed or if they have they have been too polite to mention it...



And besides that, I "stack and whack" and do several blocks at a time so I always have a basket of extra blocks ahead... Not too creative I admit but I make up for it in the embellishment.... Right?

So now I'm ready for Sharon's workshop... Next on my list is the label for the AAQ piece and getting it in the mail Monday along with the last block in the "seams only" RR.

They don't look all the same, what with different fabrics, different tones in different places, and of course all the embellishment!
