I really enjoyed playing with this block. Firstly piecing the background and making the most of the toile fabric.
Then it was time to sit and do the applique. I even tidied up my sewing table.
The applique actually took longer than I had expected. Once again I had to use some fabric from my stash, as my little scrap bag didn't have any decent sized pieces left. There are still a few I can cut squares out of for the next borders.
I'm very happy with the way it has turned out and am loving seeing the many other versions that have been completed, especially the bright version.
Now I have to decide how I will attach the diamonds on the next border. Will I use blanket stitch or will I have to bite the bullet and do some needle turn? Decisions, decisions......
Thanks Chooky and Susan as always for keeping me accountable.
