I have finished my Funky Chicken block. I put off adding the eye for a couple of days because I was worried about doing a piece that small. Then I realized that I was being silly. If I did it wrong, what would happen? Would I be arrested by the quilt police? Would someone come in and take my quilting supplies? I decided to just get on with it and cut out the circle before sitting down to watch the morning news. (I do all my applique while watching the 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. telecasts). I am reasonably pleased with the result. It is flat on one side but I did do it. Now perhaps I won't continue to avoid other patterns that have small or intricate pieces. I have a pattern that I bought some time ago and have been waiting until I get a bit of experience before tackling it. Maybe I will get that out and get started. Then again, maybe I should finish my other project first.
Have a great weekend.
