I am continuing to work on my string pieced applique flower blocks. I just finished up my purple block for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I never used to like purple that much but anymore it is growing on me.
Notice how the white string is very noticeable in the photo, when I was string piecing it I didn't notice this. So many times you can really see things like this when you take a photo. A black and white photo will really show the light and dark fabrics in a block
Purple String Appliqued Flower Block
Here is a closeup of the raw edge applique that I did. Using coordinating fabrics makes it easy to design blocks and a quilt.
The post wouldn't be complete without showing all the blocks so far. You can also see some of the other blocks I have made using purple quilt fabrics.
We are off to the lumber store this morning......Builder Bob will start working on a deck in a couple weeks and tomorrow is the last day of a great sale on wood. He will be sorting the wood for 125 good boards.....this will take a couple hours. The wood will then be taken to the job site and I'll make him take me to lunch. Enjoy your day!
