A little bit of stitching………

I’ve been having a ball with my new “Saigon” template.  I spent a day before Christmas cutting out and sorting into groups, then I’ve been stitching blocks since.10-dscn5251(yes they’re in need of a good press!)11-dscn5252They go together so quickly, and are such fun to make.  I’ve also made a start on the centreThere are some plans for how they’ll work in a quilt……..just hoping what’s looking good in my head looks good in reality!  (Yes, it’s on the 17 UFO’s list!)

    What I like so much about this block Meredith is that white frame separates many of the fabrics and gives them all there own space and you can see the lovely pieces of fabric instead of them all bleeding in to one large piece of fabric. A stunning wee block thanks for sharing it. I always try to sew a seam on a wee 2inch patch each time I stop sewing as my starter it uses up so many scraps this way, I think I will try seeing how they would look in a white frame, my last 16sqaure blocks I’m making up with black alternate blocks It’s on my 17 list LOL. Thanks for the idea.
