The Splendid Sampler™: Block 59


The 59th block of The Splendid Sampler is called Circle of Friendship, by Michele Muska. It’s another variation on the traditional Dresden plate, and a quite effective one. I decided to English-paper piece the blades, which helped in accuracy, although it made this block a three or four afternoons one (I don’t glue baste the templates, which makes the process slower).

Before trimming the block I added a basting stitch around the appliqué parts, to keep things in place until the sashing is added.

This pattern would make for a wonderful pillow case, wouldn’t it?

Pattern and link party for this one are here.
