The Splendid Sampler™: Block 45


I had so much fun sewing block n. 45 for The Splendid Sampler! This one is called “Sewing Nut”, by Frances Newcombe (Frances Newcombe Designs), and it’s an appliquéd block. I diverged from the given instructions a little bit and did a machine appliqué, but without using fusible web.

I simply held the fabric pieces with pins and sewed around each shape with my regular foot and lots of patience. And I just love this air of free motion it acquired! I’m not so sure about the flower, though. I shall revisit this block and decide what to do with it.

The pattern and link party for this 45th block can be found here.
