Here is my progress with this layout. Slowly, but surely, I am making headway with my blocks. My side setting triangles will be white (the blue and pink parts that you see is just my design wall). Five blocks are completed with 8 more to finish. This is the back of my rings. I use English Paper Piecing method and whatever scrap paper on hand gets used. My fabric gets basted onto the paper template and then hand sewn together.
I have tried so many different applique methods; but find myself coming back to English Paper Piecing. Whatever works for us is the way to go.
DH and I had company this past weekend. My niece, Nicole (she is wearing the pink top), ran in the Good Life Fitness Marathon and she completed 21k. Congratulations!! This was her first marathon and she breezed through the finish.
In the background, you can see some of the fall foliage that we saw when we were waiting at the Finish line at Queen's Park in downtown Toronto.
