Re WorKeD

I inadvertently stitched an applique to one Night Before Christmas block some months ago... only to realise that I had forgotten to reverse it... ooppsss... No way around it either ... so I unpicked the stitching... re cut the applique & then re stitched it to the block.
I also had to add the remaining reindeer to another block, once two blocks were sewn together.
Viola... another finished block or two... with reindeer antlers & reins also embroidered...
AND these are the last blocks.
I have started to sew rows together as well... onto the borders next... Yippee
Yes a finished flimsy is definitely in the near future...

Great progress. What a shame about the reversed images. Sometimes you can get away with it, but as you know, not always. Your blocks look great.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I do alot of applique and I always seem to get my blocks going in the opposite directions from the way the pattern shows them--in most cases it doesn't matter, but reindeer's pulling a sleigh--not that one would have to go in the right direction!!!
looking good--
love and laughter, di

Great job on fixing up the applique Cheryll, quite a fiddly job I imagine, but it looks perfect! Can't wait to see the blocks together!

Congrats on your daughters win. I'm sure she will do heaps with the win.
Well done. What a bonus for their hard work over the 3 months they were doing it.
It's a relief now it's all over
