Here are the 182 Day Solstice Challenge Blocks 14 and 15. Both were fun to make. I machine zig-zagged around the edge of the petal appliques. In retrospect, I'm afraid I didn't read the instructions closely enough to know if we were supposed to needle turn the petals? Or not? So I just did what was most enjoyable for me, and that was machine stitching them.
But wait! There's more. I guess I hadn't posted the 13th block, Studio Time. I took the time (and fabric) to fussy cut the center blocks, and I think that gives it a nice effect.
I must say I have been looking forward to each of Pat Sloan's new blocks - we get a new one every two weeks. They are larger than what I'm used to working with (most are 12.5 inch blocks), and they are relatively easy to complete and don't take a lot of time. I do believe this will be the first sampler quilt I'll actually complete. Go, me!
What have you been working on this week?
