This is the Sue pattern with the markings for applique. The shoes are numbers 1,2,3,and 4... and go down first..then follow the numbers to set each piece in place. I mark the center of my pattern,the center of the background piece..and begin laying out and arranging my pattern pieces...then appliquing them down. This is the manner that works best for me..if you have another way that works for you..please,leave a comment and share with us. I would love to hear from you.
This is our October BOM.
If you remember, I was to make the block, post it and then post the pattern. Well, as you can see..that's not how it's happened. I wasn't counting on being ill, in hospital for 9 days and then the usual things that always come up. *sighs deeply here. I did get the block partially finished..with only one little one, however it just doesn't look right. I need to step back, take a deep breath..and begin again.
So,with no further ado, and no more excuses.... I offer you the October block. The little ones fit on a 12" block.....
Aren't they cute..peering into the pumpkin. Is is a Halloween Trick or Treat pumpkin ???, is it a regular pumpkin that's been hollowed out and carved to hold a candle????? Our girls, Sunbonnet Sue and her dearest friend Hannah seem awfully interested. I wonder..will the girls go trick or treating???? Will they have a Halloween party with all their little friends ????
And..I wonder..how will you make the block? I would love to see your block if you join in. Now, I am off and away to begin mine again. I'm looking forward to having more time to do little block..and I hope I can manage it. Good luck with your blocks..I can't wait to see the finished blocks.
