The Splendid Sampler™: Block 47


When I saw the 47th block of The Splendid Sampler I thought it was going to be the most difficult and tricky block so far.

And it was not. “Circle of Love”, by Geta Grama, is a spectacular block with a really easy construction: fusible, raw edge appliqué. The tricky part was to cut all the pieces with the fusible web and not lose any of the pointy parts; stitching them, was a question of patience and not rushing things under the presser foot.

I love the final result. I’m glad I decided to play with just two contrasting fabrics, letting the pattern do all the visual work.

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