I just can’t resist making these this week while I procrastinated yet another paper that I was hoping to submit yesterday…I will probably even sew a second block C this week while I’m out and about. I got lucky and found by one 35 year old spool of silk thread almost accidentally and it was trying to tell me to start the applique block.
I didn’t think I would need a practice block for this one, but the background is pretty relatively dark and now the off-centered-ness of the cup is bugging me. I may have to try handpiecing the curves instead of using a solid background piece on the next one.
I also made the more precise version of Block B. It isn’t perfect but that’s ok. In fact I like my first one better now too. I think I may have put a filter on this on instagram and that’s why the other one seems darker.
