Patchwork of Patience

After two long, full days of piecing, I am this far on the last side of the Advent antependium.  You can see the stars forming.
As much as I dislike having the freezer paper on the back of these tiny patches, it really is essential as they are too small to be held in place by a pin.  For the non-quilters reading this, the shiny side of the freezer paper adheres to the fabric when it's ironed
At this rate it will take the rest of the week to finish this side...barring interruptions...or power outages from Hurricane Sandy (yikes!!)

  2. Fingers crossed that storm doesn't come too close - it has the potential to do lots of damage, and we don't want that.

  3. Even when I see the paper side I can't really figure out how you do it. Very cool ... and mysterious!
