This one is definitely for the Monet NYB group of blocks. I love the little touch of pink in this block.
When I grade the seams on blocks that contain metallics and batiks, I tend to grade the metallic fabric as it is quite a bit thicker than the batiks.
This one is also destined for the Monet NYB group of blocks.
Block pressed and seams graded.
There are now 35 of the 6″ New York Beauty blocks done. I think once I’ve got 42 finished blocks I’ll start playing with possible settings. I may end up using both the Tiffany Lamp and Monet blocks together.
The red-bellied woodpecker is still here, as are some robins. With all the leaves gone from the trees out on the roof garden, we have a fabulous view of the woodpecker when he’s on the tree. I couldn’t grab the camera fast enough to get a picture, so found this one on Wikipedia that was free for use. I think its markings are very striking – the red head and the black and white stripes.
After all that, he needed a nap with Raggedy Ann.
