Week 4

 This week we made the beautiful heart block,
Its quite straightforward, but the important thing to remember is to change the centre strip around each time. If you didnt turn the strips around, when you sew the blocks together you would end up with one continual line through the centre of all the blocks , and it would take away from the block.

See here how effective the blocks look together.

week 3

This is Bettys log cabin, she has used very strong colours, but dont they look good.

These are also Bettys. she made her own vine for flower row, and instead of butterflys she used stars.
Why dont you experiment with different types of applique around the leaves and the butterflys on these two rows.
Also you can go wild with the flowers, and put as many as you like on the vine.
Its best to leave the flowers off though for now, until you have finished the quilting.
