Block n. 96 of The Splendid Sampler™ is called “In the sunshine”, by Cheryl Arkison. I already had 2.5″ squares cut from previous blocks (aka cutting mistakes), so I didn’t have to think about the colour scheme for this one.
I deviated from the instructions in the flag construction: I sewed directly a wonky line wrong-sides together, then trimmed the seam allowances and cut notches and clips to help they following their form when pressing. For the appliqué I went with needle turn-appliqué.
I’m thinking of using this flag on the horizontal as a label for the sampler… Although I label, if I do so, on the back, it can be a good place to stitch the name and dates of the quilt, doesn’t it?
