Are You Tired Of These Yet?

I'm still on a roll this week...the colors on this one look really washed out. It's much more intense in real life...

This is "F-5, Parcheesi", an intermediate-level block made using the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch method (again). The squares and melons were all cut out as one piece, just like I explained in this post. This one was a little tougher because I had to also cut out the center, but it wasn't bad. One hour's work, tops.

I really like the colors in this one. I'm not tired of seeing these beautiful blocks. They are lovely.

No, not tired of watching your progress. I will probably never make one and it's fun to see you work on yours.

I honestly can say *never* tired of them...always beautiful colors and creative blocks! DJ at its best IMHO!!

One hour? Sixty minutes?

And such a beautiful block.


My hero.

Gosh no...not tired of it at all and hoping that I'll glean your technique. I love the raw edge applique technique, do you ever use a different stitch other than blanket stitch? Invisible thread? Yvette (BOM quilter) pointed me over here and I'm learning a lot.
