Anyway, here are my blocks. I love this one. Gwen wanted us to choose a word and then applique it onto her block in any way we chose. I went with "evolve" because the ability to be adaptable and flexible in life is something I'm striving for.
I love this L made of yoyos. They're teeny tiny, as evidenced by the second picture.
When I thought of the concept of the block, I thought of my own evolution with the needle and thread. I started, as most do, with the sewing basics: a running stitch, learning how to attach a button, counted cross stitch. Then I moved into more difficult tasks like piecing and applique.
Trust me when I say that I tried to find a way to put a dress or a skirt on there in some way, but I just couldn't. ;)
Gwen also wanted a couple of log cabin blocks, which are my favorite to sew.
Yolanda wanted some spiderweb blocks and I just love her fabric choices. My pic makes the blocks look good, but I really think they're bad. Well, one is bad, the other is OK. I do like making these blocks though, so maybe I'll just offer to make a couple more. :)
See you next week with the final steps to our Marie skirts!
