I took a break from hand quilting and did a little hand piecing today.
I recently bought these vintage circle blocks
and I showed them on a few different fabrics to show how different a block can look when the setting fabrics change.
The fabrics I placed them on were all fabrics from other projects so I didn’t plan to use any of them….although I liked all for different reasons. There was however a problem with all of them, they were too bold for me. Not that I don’t like bold but in this case they made the vintage blocks secondary to the bolder fabric.
I went with a very different fabric …
Now It is what I envisioned. I will do big stitch hand quilting with black #8 perle cotton thread but I have a lot more piecing to do first…and then a border
