French General Petite Ecole - little red/burgundy dots on I suppose what you'd call a mushroom or mink background. Priceless!
As far as progress goes... I have finished piecing all my points, and have two more seams to complete to get my central square finished. Whew! I think I was most worried about gusts of wind (named Nadia and Dylan) whooshing my little squares away from their carefully randomised placements. Next problem will be actually cutting out the required humungous triangles from the background fabric... instructions say to cut a 43" square and cut on both diagonals... sounds scary. I have drafted the pattern roughly into EQ6 and printed off the template for the triangle which I will use to cut around. Much safer I hope. The beauty of EQ6 templates is that they cut the bunny ears off, and allow perfect matching - music to my ears.
I've chosen my next grouping of fabrics for Swoon block number two. This time the large floral (which was the star in the last block) will feature in the little accent triangles, the solid will be the largest bit, and the grey print will be the central star.
All ready for next month.
I've also finished blanket stitching the last few flowers and leaves on My Tweets central panel. It sure has been a busy few weeks.
