Block 35 – called English Ivy -- of Just Takes 2 project is done.
I believe all the points are going in the right direction and all the pieces are in correct order. Just in case, I’m waiting several hours before I post this blog entry so I can look at it again with rested, clear vision.
The next JT2 block I’ll work on will be a machine appliqued one just for a little change of pace. The paper piecing is getting easier now that I’m doing it more often and get into a “groove.”
I’m noticing that the areas on my blocks where several seams intersect, I’m getting a whitish smudge when pressed. I’m wondering if it is because my iron sole plate needs to be cleaned or if the Best Press sizing is building up there leaving a residue when I press the fabric. Maybe I’m spraying it on too thick. Any ideas?
