OMG, Bunny Hill Designs makes the most complicated pieced backgrounds for their applique blocks. I am doing their pattern 'Pumpkin Hill' as a sort of 'self-imposed-BOM'. I just got to block 4 and it's huge and with a zillion pieces. It took me almost 3 hours to make a background for applique:
Now, granted, their finished blocks, with the applique on them are very interesting, and probably far prettier than just slapping applique pieces onto a slab of a single fabric, but 3 hours to make one block? I'm exhausted! lol
I am supposed to be on a stay-at-home retreat this weekend, but with the completion of piecing this background, I have nothing else left to work on. Which is fine. I have a little clean up still left to do - putting away all the fabrics I pulled for this block.
Tonight I'm gonna see the new Harry Potter movie, tomorrow is for D&D and maybe seeing Cars2. Sunday, I'm volunteering at the county fair. My retreat weekend is being cut short by life. That seems to happen a lot to me lately. C'est la vie!
For the Simple Love of Simple Squares!
