Morrell Quilt Blocks
These 3 blocks are my latest finished for the Morrell Quilt. The first is another broderie perse block with the design cut from the same fabric as the peacock block.
The second block is one of the quicker blocks to finish (thank goodness after some of the trickier blocks!!) This one is just needle roll applique.
The last block is a sunburst star. Well, its certainly not perfect but its done! It was hand pieced in sections like slices of a pie, then sections were pieced in pairs before they were all joined together. The whole star was then needle roll appliqued onto the background fabric. As I got closer to the end my points were getting a bit better. Some are pretty wobbly! LOL More practice!
The next broderie perse block has a border of triangles around it. In the last class we had I learnt paper piecing using freezer paper. That method will make getting those triangles to line up properly a whole lot easier. :)
The last photo is some orchids from my garden. The plant has done very well this year and there are 6 more branches still to flower.
