And the next one. This is Block 19.
The small scale of the pattern on the floral didn’t allow me to to pick out the elements with the quilting, as I normally do. So I decided to do a simple grid and I love the ‘quilty’ effect. This is one of the earliest blocks I made, and it’s interesting to observe how my ideas and tastes moved on as I built the fabric collection for this project. I love the fabric, but I wouldn’t use it for this quilt a second time round. Also interesting to see how my appliqué skills improved; later blocks are not quite so wonky 🙂 And in case you’re wondering, the blocks are numbered according to when I quilted them and their position in the quilt, not the date I completed the assembly of each individual block.
Bee, Myself and I is a forum for ‘selfish sewing’; any stitchery which is purely for pleasure and not to a deadline or for anyone else. The original concept belongs to Carla of Granny Maud’s Girl.

Till next time.
