Happy June everyone...just sneaking in a bit late with my May blocks ;)
I've been struggling a bit with the plain/ tone-on-tone backgrounds I've been using over the last few months. I like LOTS of colour, and working with so many plains had me a bit uninspired to be honest.
My solution? Just add polkadots!
Some brighter, polkadot backgrounds are making my appliques pop just a little more, and have inspired me to keep going. Only another month or two until I can introduce lots of colour to the borders....YAY!
They need a good press, but here are my May blocks. I've totally avoided the paper-piecing on the hexies (ran out of time to learn that new skill!) so used the fusible method with blanket stitch. I love the extra texture of the raised stitches.
Time to start on June....how quickly is this year flying by?
