Using templates

Do you have patterns and templates you have never used?  

When Jenny Doan of Missouri Star has her daily deals I check them out and have a lot of her templates
Now the trick is to USE them
So I pulled this one that uses 5 inch squares
And made  "ornament shapes"
I thought they would make cute holiday mug rugs

Sewed one down but my machines satin stitch is not pretty
Will need a plan B
Maybe a muslin background and stitch and flip borders till I get a piece big enough?

Who knows why I Was playing with this template

Maybe a subliminal message when I was putting this piece away?

I got frustrated with it and started cutting more strips to finish my temecula blocks
I still need 18 of part 2
And a bunch of part 3

Part 4 will be out on Friday

Maybe an angel us trying to tell me to buckle down on the projects

I am right there with you. I grabbed something to do for a fun little project. Yep didn't work at all. Will go back and revisit it, but the next couple of days are charity.

I have so many quilt gadgets and I don't even use them! I love to get them when they're on sale and then forget I have them! What a waste! It's fun to work on lots of projects at once. You never get bored!
