Tricking the Eye

This is "K-5, Passing Through", an intermediate-level block that I rotary cut and used the raw-edge machine buttonhole-stitch applique method for the diamonds. The light-colored diamonds are not separate pieces of fabric. I just stitched the outline of the diamond on the larger piece of the light fabric. It fools the eye into thinking it's a separate piece.

Well, it tricked my eye! Very clever indeed, and pretty to boot! Have a lovely holiday Anya.

you are doing so well with your blocks. I plan to get back to mine in the next week or so. Have to clear off the dining table (where I sew) for dinner tomorrow. Thanks so much for the lovely post card. I have it sitting on my shelf in the tv room.

Your shortcuts are totally clever. Time to get back to mine, and your steady progress keeps reminding me of that.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Anya.
