Friday Nights sew in and I have been busy

This is the first time I have ever sewn with Monofilament! As you can see it didn't work too well - I had problems with the tension.
This is one of the blocks I used my Applique Stabiliser on, and the reason I have taken a shot of it at an angle was to try to show you that the glue came out - no problems and the Applique Stabiliser has fluffed up and I guess turned to fiber...it does have a soft feel to it, and I am pleased with the result. The other 'bird' block is soaking overnight.

I did this also and I got all the applique sewn on ... a little better tension with the Monofilament this time...I wont wash this till its quilted and fiished. Now I will be sitting and staring to work out how to quilt it .

This is a closeup to show the sewing.

It's really great to know others are sewing along with me...all over the world!!

I'm not so found of the monofilament, either. But I don't think the brand I tried was quality.

OHHH I really like the second block! What is the pattern, if you don't mind me asking? (like I need another project) Anyway... Looks great!
