Blocks for Month Seven
I have finally finished all my Noah and Matilda blocks . Well, not really as the next set just came out .
It was the grapes that did me in this month. They are so tiny about 1/4” and it took me a while to decide how I wanted to make them. Dawn discuses several ways on her blog Collector with a Needle and I really like the way she did hers but just couldn’t get it to work for me .
I usually make my circles using the little perfect circles from Karen Kay Buckley but I didn’t have one small enough so I just had to needle turn them. They are not all perfect as you can see but they will do.
Another thing that slowed me down - after getting last months patterns with the purple grapes I decided I really didn’t want to have blue in my quilt so I went back and redid all the blocks with blue. I did leave the little blue bird. Just couldn’t make myself change that little bird.
I like my blocks much better now.
I have really enjoyed making these little blocks. Each months set seems to hold a new appliqué challenge for me .
Have a great stitching day,
