do. good stitches block for the Cherish circle. The theme was aqua and orange. After trying paper piecing for the first time and falling in love with the technique (but printing the template the wrong size) I went back and had another go using this tutorial by Leila and ended up with the block I'd planned in the first place - so pleased!!!
|white sparrow on aqua background, orange blossoms as centre block; hst in each corner, orange on aqua diamonds to NSEW of sparrow.|
The block is called Diamond Dash and yup, that's Joel Dewberry's Aviary 2 print in there. The colours worked perfectly for this month's DGS requirements. :) I'm kinda in love with this block. I want to keep it, but no, the little sparrow must fly away to make someone else happy...
Discovered the Quilter's Cache along the way which will be helpful for these bees. I don't like doing the same block time and again which is why bees will be good for me.
I'm never going to make a sampler, but I'm keeping and eye on Leila's blog and anything with this "We can do it - skill builder" button.
