The Scrap Jar block uses a inset piec-lique method developed by Sharon Schamber. It took a bit of work sewing around those curves. Mine did get a little wonky as you can see, but I am hoping that with quilting and washing the extra fabric will blend in. =)
The Pin Cushion block is an appliqué block. I have done some appliqué work before, but this was my first time using mono-filament thread. That stuff takes some getting used to. I had to set my tension pretty low to keep the bobbin thread from pulling to the top. The mono-filament thread also kept unspooling and wrapping around the spool pin which caused lots of issues, so I did have to pick out a section of stitches. But in the end I finished it. =) And I do like how well the mono-filament thread blends in.
These are just a few more of the Wonky blocks for my queen sized quilt. I am getting there. Slow and steady wins the race, right? =) I only have four more sets of blocks to sew up before I can put the quilt top together. It is so fun to see how all the blocks are turning out.
I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
