BUSTED! :oops: :oops:

Yes...I do, in fact now have Month 4 and can tell you that you will be needing supplies for applique. :D Sue Nickels and Pat Holly's directions are for fusible applique secured with a buttonhole stitch. I really like the way they trim away the excess fusible so the pieces don't get stiff!

You have two whole weeks to finish up the arcs!

So glad to help Barb! I also like to try new methods. You never know when you will learn something that works better for you than what you have been doing!! :D

It looks like Month 3 is the last of the elements that can be paper pieced for this project.
Ah-ha! Margo! I sense that you already have Month 4 instruction in hand! Lucky you! And you will post your results on April 2nd! :D
I'm not against that! I'm sure you will share another of your precious video for us to enjoy! :)

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Margo for the paper-piecing tutorial wisdom. I used the striplate methods for Months 1 and 2 because I wanted to learn everything in front of me. After using the paper-piecing for the Month 3 Arcs, I am now an avid endorser of this method. It is thrilling beyond words to stack up the completed arcs and see that they are all the exact same size and shape.

Month 3 is completed, and I am eagerly waiting for Month 4. :D

OK...I just got this message back from Irene:

Please tell her to refer to photos 1 and 3 to see where the grain line goes on the template 3-A. Template 3-B appears in photos 6 and 7, although it's not quite as critical for that one because there's only one way it really fits.

I never really wrapped my head around the Striplate Piecing Method, so I have forwarded your question to the lady who edited the instructions. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from her, if she doesn't get to the forum to make a post.

So....hang on....we are working on it!

Gail: congratulations for your anniversary! I thought you married at 10 :D

Susan: Just for one set of 4, I spend about 2 hours (once everything was printed, ironed and cut). I guess that for the rest, once I start chain piecing, somewhere between 8-10 hours will be sufficient.

I SHOULD GET BACK ON THIS THIS WEEKEND!!!!

Thanks Andree! I'm hoping that once I concentrate on it, things will move quickly. I get kind of addicted to the nice routine of sewing and listening to a good book.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments, much appreciated.
Sue, although I didn't time this months work, to me the work load seemed similar to the last 2 months. The upshot is you still have half the month left so I'm sure you will romp it in :)

Which method are you using? Striplate or Paper Piecing?
