My bad....

even I was surprised that I hadn't posted the first block that I finished on my Chick's Jubilee block of the month project.  Bet I put it away because some other project was screaming at me to move along.

Here are the first 2 blocks.  Pastels aren't my usual color pallet so it's fun working with them.   

I had a little oops with block 2.  I forgot that these patterns have to be reversed.  I do so many applique projects you'd think I'd know to check but I guess most of my patterns don't need to be reversed. 

 I must have done a better job of reading the instructions the first month because I got this one right.

Isn't she sweet?

My pattern notebook is now sporting this ugly and glaring note. 

You can see block 2 done in the current direction on the pattern picture.  Luckily it won't really effect the over all outcome but I don't want to continue making the same mistake. 

Happy stitching.


  1. Do you use freezer paper or fusible for our applique? Love the blanket stitch!

  2. Glad the reversed applique really wasn't a problem to the final look! It is really adorable--love that sweet chick popping out of the lavender tulip egg.

    Your note will be very useful in the future--I need to put one on my sewing machine saying "Check for right sides together!" After all the little pillows I've done, I still seem to manage to sew the wrong sides together every now and then!
