Getting this week's block stitched straight away is definitely a bonus. We are all packed, ready to head off on our adventure tomorrow, so there was time to spare.
I was hoping it would be an easy block as anything time consuming would not get finished.
This week's block is "Flowering Tree" by Amy Friend. I haven't done a great deal of foundation paper piecing, so had to have a little look at a tutorial. This one by Carol Doak was quite helpful.
Of course I had to find a floral fabric, which wasn't too hard given the style I'm using. After a false start by placing my first piece of fabric upside down, it came together rather easily. Another technique that I've gained a little more confidence in.
Now the machine is packed away until we get back from our trip and I'm off to bed, as tomorrow is a big day.
