I had big plans today.... but not too much of it actually happened! I did get a little sewing in, not exactly what I had planned to work on though. Oh well, progress was made. Some will wait for Saturday and the RSC but I will show a progress shot of a 'new' project.
I know, last week and you are adding another 'block' to the mix? Why yes, yes I am. I had marked page 34 - Erin's Butterfly in the book that has hand drawn blocks where I found a version of my 'Endless Diamonds'.
I had just enough template plastic to make the 3 parts needed. Must remember to get another sheet of that stuff! I cut out the 20 'fans' and then found a light pink fabric for the inner part of the wings. I machine stitched these fans, then hand pieced the curved portion on. Now I'll baste the drawn stitching line under so I can applique it to a background... then add the body in the middle and some embroidered antennae.
