SKOW Background Fabric Arrived!


My parcel arrived from the Fat 1/4 Shop and these were inside...
I will be using three of them for my final background
 fabrics for SKOW Stitch-a-long......
These are the 8 Backgrounds that I have chosen.....
I now have all of my fabrics ready to go....
All I need now is some time to get started on my blocks.....
And an answer to the question.....
To needle turn or button hole ??????
Until next time, Happy Stitching

I'm going to buttonhole mine...would love to learn to needleturn, but the texture of buttonhole gets me every time. Love it. Your fabrics are gorgeous!

Linda said...

Lovely fabric choice and as to the question i am doing needleturn for the first time and i reallly love how puffy they are.

Satu said...

Lovely fabrics... I earlier prefered button holes, but nowadays I like needleturn more. Sometimes I mix them; small shapes are more difficult done with needleturn...?

Maria said...

Lovely fabrics. I needle turn. It is nice and easy, I think. Have fun!
