Block #7 is finished. I made a couple of little changes.
I placed a piece of fabric behind the basket weaving, and behind the reverse applique in the large flowers.
I added a couple of circles to the design too. I wanted to get a touch of blue in the block. They’re at the base of the 3 leaves and the base of the large flower.
To do the basket weave, I marked the position where the strips should be placed on the striped fabric that would show through. Then I pinned it in place and basted it to the background so it wouldn’t shift. Then I laid my strips over the markings, pinning as I went. I didn’t baste the strips down because I had to maneuver the strips up and down to create the basket weave effect. Once I had everything in place, I just hand stitched the pieces down.
I use short pins, so I didn’t have much...
