Patching Progress

It's coming along!  It's coming along!

on my table

Happily, a little pluck in trying out some new tools yielded quite a pleasurable applique experience this morning!  Now I'm just 2 birds short of completing the applique phase of The Penny Sampler. This time, all my applique has turned-under edges, because this quilt is going to be durable and machine washable.  Yes-sirree.

Phase 2 is more traditional piecing on a small scale. Yay!  Sounds like a nice change of pace.

And I daresay I'm loving where this is going...
