I am still enjoying this project immensely. I have to force myself to work on Mama’s Bukid. I love how Mama’s Bukid is coming out but I’m not drawn to work on it like I am Gamer.  I wrapped up all the sides of the fabric and made a grime guard.  I found a cool tutorial here. Hopefully, the link works. I found that I have a ton of fabric to smush because it’s a big piece and the grime guard didn’t keep all the fabric in.  So next time, I will make the width of the guard a bit bigger to accommodate the bunch of fabric I want it to hold. Once I’m done filling in all the pieces on this page, I will need to migrate over to the 11×11 QSnap.  I started making the grime guard for that one when I made the grime guard the 8×8 so the fabric will still be too much for this one.  But I will finish the one I started and use that for now.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Stitching!
