I am finally done with the center applique block for the Vintage quilt. It always takes me a long time to get applique work done and this was no exception but I pushed through yesterday and today and got it done. I used a yo-yo method to do the berries, gathering them into a circle around a little piece of cardboard and ironing them. I don't think anyone would notice, or know, that there were supposed to be 9 berries on each side instead of 7. Who says there can't be 7 of them?
I haven't washed the border fabric yet and today I wondered if the scalloped design would line up with the triangle pattern of the outer blocks. Wouldn't that be cool to have a scallop at each one? It will be one more thing to check on when doing the borders and mitering.
