I could not have a Sunday post without a picture so I worked a bit on this last Sunday and here’s where it’s at now.

I had to trim a bit of the gray of the center flower so that it would line up right with the black part.  I wasn’t enjoying stitching this as I had trimmed the black part too much.

Each of the centers were trimmed prior to applique’ing the top piece down so that it will not be too bulky later.  So in parts where the applique was too close to the inner line, I had to be very careful in making sure I held all the pieces together so that my needle and fabric wouldn’t come off and produce a hole.  It was aggravating and once I finished this piece, I put it away.

Until next time…

  1. Love that wool block, though! Congratulations on your yarn use, and at least you are in the black on fabric. =)

  2. Applique can sometimes be tricky like that, getting the pieces just exactly where they should be. I suppose it’s different appliqueing with wool than with cotton. You probably don’t turn under the edges on wool. I like the muted colors of your block. They are restful and inviting.
