Smitten Block One Finished
Finally, my last block one! This took longer as I went away in the middle and then I started a completely new project - like you do. It was nice to have a little break. I do keep looking at all my block ones together... they don't really gel together which worries me! I definitely need to get some stripes into the next set of blocks.
So here is another Heather Ross print. I do love the unicorns. I was going to have yellow diamonds which matched those little yellow flowers in the middle but then I decided that I needed to be more adventurous... yeah, well I am not so sure about that now.
And here is the back. Look at all those tiny stitches. My system is that I start off whip stitching for about 5-10 stitches, then I tie a knot, open out the two shapes and do the rest is what I call a flat whip stitch – I made that up.
So here are all my block ones. Do they go? Do the repeated fabrics help? IS it a mess? You can tell me!
5th Block in Heather Ross' Far Far Away and Lizze House's The Lovely Hunt
4th block in Heather Ross' Tiger Lily and Cotton & Steel
3rd Block in Lizze House's Catnap and Cotton & Steel
2nd block in Heather Ross' Mendocino and Lizzie House's Constellations
First block in Heather Ross' Nursery Versery and the raindrop fabric which I can't recall right now.
So there you have it! Has anyone else even started? I might start thinking about the next set of blacks but it's half term next week so I am taking it easy.
