I’m working on a new quilt and it’s pretty simple. It’s set on square and is an every-other-block kind of an arrangement. This is the basic posey block:
All of these applique shapes are being free motion embroidered or trapuntoed while they are still in just the block stage. I’m not sure what I did wrong with my camera yesterday, but these photos are not as crisp as they usually are. Here is a pair of leaves that are finished with the EKG edge finishing design:
The photos of the posies with their edges finished are really hazy, so they’re not even worth showing. One thing about these posies that’s kind of cool is that there is a second fabric behind the posey to color its center. That’s a little clearer in this other shot from another project that has some wool felt posies in it:
And here’s what the back of the block looks like once it’s ready for piecing:
I know what I want to do design-wise in the every-other blocks, but I haven’t chosen my background fabric yet so I can’t get started. I’m determined to use something from my existing. So far, this whole quilt is from fabrics that have been sitting around here for awhile. Stay tuned!
