Just a little post as I highlight my progress on Block 2 of the Homespun magazine Tilda BOM.
This block is an interesting mixture of piecing and EPP with a dresden fan block and a scallop block made with these paper pieces, a heart applique block and pieced drunkards path blocks.
I completed all of these with fusible web and machine blanket stitch!
The scallops were the most complicated, with a lot of different fabrics used.
I decided to simplify the Dresden fan by using only two fabrics. The bottom set of petals I cut as one shape, then laid the blue single petals on top, with the central circle placed last.
Once I worked out the drunkards path fourpatches were 2 inch finished, I knew I was going to fuse them. I had intended to fuse the multicolored inner circle too, but once I'd had got this far, it made just as much sense to fuse a circle in a single colour.
And it was a complete no brainer that the applique would be fused!
