It's been awhile since I had time to make a few Patchique' Blocks, with Amanda, The Patchsmith, but I was able to get two blocks done this week.
|Making blocks along- side Amanda, The Patchsmith|
Japanese Taupe Quilts book by Susan Briscoe
|Block #21 from Japanese Taupe Quilts page 46 in book|
This block has 49 pieces... but went pretty smoothly .(It still amazes me when it turns out ok !)
|#21 Kasuri crosses by Susie's Sunroom|
The applique' block: #80 Neji nioi ume (Matching twisted plum blossom)
|Block #80 page 81 from book|
I decided to make each petal a different fabric, like Amanda did on her block.

I was pleased to see that it also featured a yoyo center.

|Completed blocks..... 30 of them now!|
I also made a rather sad attempt to make my first mini Nested Churn Dash block. I am going to totally blame Amanda, The Patchsmith , because she made this tiny block look SO EASY!! (see her blog here)
As you see below ,my mini Churn Dash turned out a bit wonky, and thus , is officially a mini Churn Crash !
I need to sew slower, use zero steam, and pick different fabrics (no stripes). (I will not be submitting this to the Nested Churn Dash Sew Along, I guess!)

(notice I did not put my name on it?!)

and so darn cute!!
Well, after seeing Amanda's again, I just may be trying this Nested Churn Dash block again!
|I'm off to my sewing room!|
