Three more blocks in the upper left will complete the first three rows and then there's one block in the lower right. I still have to buy fabric for the sashing and the edge triangles.
I'm so glad I'm participating in this SAL because I never would have attempted to make this quilt on my own. What I find really interesting when making these blocks is how Gay at Sentimental Stitches breaks down the units to be pieced and/or appliqued. That center circle was appliqued over the gold house-shaped pieces to create the curve.
These Perfect Circles really came in handy.
Gay broke this pattern down by first appliqueing flowers and stems to rings of colors that were then appliqued to the background. It was a little tricky to get them all lined up but I was amazed how they all came together.
Another foundation-pieced block :)
I nearly cringed when I saw this one! It took me more than a week of appliqueing one leaf per night then onto berries.
I must admit I'm not fond of making berries. These are about 1/2" finished and I tried two techniques: one by using round page reinforcements (remember those?); the other by gathering the fabric around a circle cut from a piece of card stock. I wasn't pleased with either result. I guess I need more practice, lol!
The next set should be available today. I can't wait!
