This was one of the most interesting blocks to work on, it sort of told me what it wanted on it, and as you can see it is all embellished no seam work at all. I truly loved this challenge.
I have another block that I made a long time ago and it has the silks of the babies from it on this one and it will be worked with a lot of stitches.
I also have one that will have the embellished silkie on it, and have one of the little girls in ballet that should fit on a large green on green block that I did not finish.
I loved this journey with Kathy. I also was able to get a new sewing machine this weekend and will try and get used to the fancy stitches but first we crawl through the threading etc. I had an expensive electronic and it lasted me almost thirty-five years of sewing clothes, quilts and everyone's mending. On the day it came to do applique in relief it gave up the ghost, so to speak, and I picked up a small inexpensive machine rather than the caddie that I would love to own, but time will tell.

From selection of fabrics to making of the blocks. A colour in study and piecing out of our comfort zone.
