Now- don’t get too excited-  I'm starting off well but I'm liable not to last too well… I won’t be blogging for every block but the first few I thought I’d tell you how I made my versions and add a bit of help here for you if you are struggling or new to some of these techniques…

So the week two Free block is Milk and Cookies by Rebecca Bryant  and has a little applique and a little machine piecing.



I traced the wedge templates onto the dull side of my applique paper and pieced them together using my English Paper piecing method – ie whip stitch.

I then glued and appliqued the centre circle on by hand.

I machine pieced the background block using Kari Carr’s Clearly Perfect Angles tool to assist – and then machine appliqued the circle to the background.
