We took a class tonight to create a center medallion for our Friday night block of the month quilt. Wendy showed me a cool stitch to use for applique; mode 3, #34. It's a random satin stitch. I ended up using it on the outside of a flower and it turned out looking like a peacock feather. I probably would have never used this stitch so it's a great find. This of course also reminded us that we really should make stitch charts for our machines. How do you know what something does unless you play with it?
Before class started I put together the block that we got last week. I put it together wrong so I just figured out a new layout for my pieces and went with it. Instead of thinking mistake, I'm thinking that I just made my quilt a little bit different than the 70+ others doing this same quilt with the same fabric. This is block number 11. There are 14 blocks to this quilt with a medallion added in the center.
I'll just show a piece of the applique in this post because I didn't finish it. It was totally finished by the time I took it's picture.
