This is block 8 of The Splendid Sampler hosted by
Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson. I will say that this one
went nicely, I liked the block and I tried to choose
colors that would go well with each other.
The purple, green and orange are all in the yellow
fabric with hints of green too.
There are 100 blocks, 2 per week except for holidays.
I will admit I am not an expert at any of this so the
skill building is welcome.
I liked the embroidery although my poor bear must
be related to the Coneheads! I will probably trim this
out in the 30's material so it fits in with the other blocks.
I used needle turn applique here but I sure wish I
would have used templates for the flowers!
I am going to order Perfect Circles and may as well
throw in Perfect Ovals because you just know
those will be arriving on a pattern within the
Two blocks a week doesn't sound like much,
unless you work with a one way transit time of an hour
plus trying to take care of things around the house.
I have about 4 hours between arriving home and
bed so I try to catch up on the weekends.
I have also had to split my time between this
and the bees this weekend, getting the hives
ready for the bees which will be here in April.
The tops for the hive were painted yesterday so I'll
have some photos coming up in the next day or two.
