After reading Tazzie's post about FWQS block #78 the other day, I decided to get it out of the way, while I didn't need a hammer to flatten the seams, I did give it a really good press with a hot iron (and it still looks as if it needs more ironing). In fact I have actually used a hammer a few times on really thick seams, it works quite well especially on a jeans hem.
#78 - Shooting Star
I put in a bit of time on the background blocks of another Sue Spargo project - Crimson Tweed, all of these blocks are ready for the applique, which now means I have to trace all the shapes onto freezer paper and then select fabric, trim etc. The fabric on the borders is too dark for my liking as is the large strip in the middle, I'll probably use some more of the light grey wool that I got a while ago.
