Interesting current event: Wall Street is failing and needs a $700 trillion bailout or the next Great Depression will start. I'm already depressed thinking about it.
I kind of got stuck with this one and it sat on the side table for a couple of weeks before I did the hard part. First, I appliqued a black circle onto the background fabric. That was super easy. Then I had to figure out how to cut things so I could reverse applique the middle blue section. I really hate doing melons, so this made sense at the time but in reality it didn't work so well. As you can see, there is still glue all over this block because I'm afraid to soak the glue out. Will the edges be totally frayed because I didn't have enough seam allowance? I don't know!
This looks ok now, but has the potential of a do-over if I soak out the glue and find that the lack of seam allowances in the corners created a big problem.
