not so modern a quilt block continued

As described here, this is how I decided to stitch this/these blocks.

The outside edging stitch didn't take a s long as I had anticipated.

I must be getting better or faster (not necessarily the same thing) at hand stitching!

I took it along to stitch at an event (to be blogged about soon) last week and I was pleasantly suprised by the interest shown in it.
When all is said and done we all love the stitch. No matter how it is done, be it hand or machine, basic or exemplary, Stitch is King...or should that be Queen ;)

**This is part of my own personal challenge to create and learn a bit more about traditional quilt blocks while adding my own twist, as described here. I am following the free Block of the Month classes on Craftsy as my guide.

  1. Love how it came out, really nice with the stitching.
    I think small projects are great to experiment with and try new things.


  2. Now how did you know I wanted to see it hanging on point?
