Even though I didn't use green for the leaves and stem I still think it looks quite pretty. My points got a little munched, but that's old news by now. I stitched the entire center part together before I pressed anything. I was slightly nervous it wouldn't press flat, but it did. That was a happy surprise--I thought I was going to be in a rage and hunting for the spray starch but no, it was good enough.
The triangles are a little uneven, and the square isn't a square, but when you look at the whole block it's not crazy obvious.
You know what, though? Now that I'm looking at this picture it doesn't look like the off-shapes are quite so off, but almost meant to be that way. So really the only problem is the munched points. It's all in how you spin it :)
I actually really like it. I don't know if I would do a whole quilt of this block as it was a little too slow for my taste, but it would make a pretty pillow or table runner.
Other than this block I feel like I've been chained to my machine sewing new cushion covers for some of the chairs on the porch. I'm not complaining--they were what my mom wanted for her birthday. Two months ago. Good thing the weather has been too chilly to sit outside, and that my mumsy is made of patience. I'm almost all done, but after working with red-toned fabrics for the past week I think I need some more color...must search the project box to see what I can find.
Back soon! Happy Friday!
