This was the beginning of a new block design as I was just starting the 2nd hooping. Here’s what the 3 blocks looked like once they’d been completed: It’s been so long since I worked on a black background that I’d forgotten how dramatic a backdrop it can be. I added a corner triangle into each corner, and this block shows the squares pinned on, before they’d been sewn in place and then trimmed: This next shot shows the table runner once it’s been sewn together. I like how it came out: I outlined each applique shape with invisible thread and did my SID work. I used 2 of the PTD arc rulers to create a small frame in the center of each floral quartet: …and then stitched a featherette in the center. If you view each featherette as 4 equal parts, it’s pretty easy to do this: (Do you see that clear acrylic ruler foot? That’s the Clarity ruler foot and it’s available in our store here.) This last shot shows the completed featherette: I haven’t gone any further than this, but I have plans!
