More Silk Blocks


A couple of weeks ago I shared some dupioni silk blocks that I was working on during our drive down to Florida.  You can see them in my post titled "Hitting The Road".

I finished one of them and have made a couple more.


The blocks measure 14" finished.  I fuse the silk down with a fusible applique called Soft Fuse, stitching a few pieces at a time.  My plan is to make a dozen of them, all different.  
I  design another one as I finish the last one.  The plan is for them all to have a Jacobean flavor.
They will surround a center square.  The design for the square is still percolating in my head.
 It's a bit slow going because I started the first block with hand stitching and so I will continue that until the quilt is done.
