I have finally managed to do a little bit of sewing. I needed to work on the next Brit Bee block which was designed by Jo and I was making for Hadley. Each block in this round of the bee is 15" by 30" so they are a whoppers.
It began with a whole bunch of flying geese which I made using the no waste method. I am never sure why I do this because I get frustrated with all the trimming and the fact that they can be just big enough... just. Even when I use scant seams, ect.
Hadley set the colour choices. I just followed her requests. But I do like they way they look together. Puts me in mind of springtime. Because I get all optimistic at this time of year.
Next up for the block was some needle turn appliqué.
Thankfully this didn't phase me as much as it does some of the others. Lots of 'favours' are being pulled this round I do believe.
And this is what the completed block looks like.
Those tiny geese at the bottom finish at 1" by 2" and they were a right b***h to make. Just saying. But the finished block is really cool so worth the effort I would say.
