BlommaBlom Block 2
Long time ago I finished this blog writing but I lost. I am writing again.
Template for the second block was in Love Quilt Mag issue 87. I recommend to buy the magazine. If you think it is already missed, good news, you may buy it digitally. There are nice tips from the designer Yasmeen. I think it is worth to read, if you are like me, a beginner to hand applique technique.
I was so enthusiastic to start. After I got the magazine and pattern I started without reading the hints. Dark blue one with pink petals is my first block, and as you notice I forgot to snip concave parts of the leaves.
Later I read the hints in the magazine and second pink leaves have indeed better shapes.
In this block I tried to use invisible thread. To be honest, I don't like working with it, the result is fine, but working with invisible thread is horrible. Million times I would prefer Aurifil 50wt, or normal thread.
Again I used freezer paper.
I changed my iron. This is another story, now I have a better, new ironing system but it is not very suitable with freezer paper.
