Wouldn't you know it took about getting half the blocks done before I figured out the ideal pinning placement?
This made the sewing quite easy.
Which is not to say that these blocks are especially accurate. My goal is to line up all the corners that make up the centers of the wheels, and "let the chips fall" where the black points all connect.
There will no doubt be some nice decorative buttons sewn over where each of the black points meet. ;-)
These are all trimmed and the edges zig zag stitched, and pinned to the design wall.
The black won't dominate so much once each diamond gets its floral motif sewn into its center, and the rest of the colorful blocks surround this center section.
I'll be leaving soon on a family visit, and don't expect to be back for a week or so....I won't be posting between now and then.
But I should get some of these seams in the wheels embellished!
Happy stitching, everybody.....
See you later.....
