In between Gold Rush events, I have been sewing away on my last row for the Rockin' Robin Quilt Along. It is titled "Hexagons" and involves (gulp) applique. I tend to avoid sewing ventures that involve concepts that I haven't been taught. I need someone to show me (yup, I'm a "show me" not a "tell me"), so I was immediately bummed that I had made it so far in the Quilt Along, and was now done. Once I quit pouting I reread the tutorial, printed out the hexagon templates and jumped in. I finally got to use my fabric folding pen that Scott got me for Christmas, and it was really fun!

I am now stitching up my last row of hexagons on my Elna, and I am using the actual applique stitch. I feel so cool right now...
|Check out the applique stitch! Oooooohhhhh, purty.|
