Carole of From My Carolina Home posted the directions for Block B for the Stars on Autumn Lane QAL on Friday.
After finishing up the cutting, trimming, and organizing of the bits and pieces for this project -
the five stars for the first part went together really quickly!
There are two choices for Block B, depending on what we want our final setting to be. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do because I like them both! I decided to lay out some cut pieces in both blocks, thinking that might help me make the decision.
Having always wanted to include Depression Blocks in a project somewhere, I decided to go with the second design, and have sewn one so far.
Only three more are needed so they should go together quickly, too.
In my slow stitching time this week...
I finished up all of the applique on my pumpkin block and added some hand quilting around the shapes. I really enjoyed planning out what to do and choosing scraps for each part.
A little more quilting is needed and the binding (which matches the bird's wing) sewn on, and then this one will be all done!
A fun and satisfying slow stitching project!
