Another Morris Block
Another William Morris block is finished. I used the new technique for applique which I recently learned. I don't think it was all that beneficial for this simple block. The blue insets in the leaves could have been done easier and faster with plain old-fashioned needle turn without all the fuss of one-use templates and loads of starch and glue. It's also very difficult to push a needle through dried glue spots and the starch makes it hard to reshape points that I wasn't satisfied with. The technique does result in beautiful and fool proof placement and the benefits would be much more apparent in complicated patterns.
A warm quilter's welcome to Kevin and Rachael. Thanks for following.
