No surprise - I'm still trying to catch up with my appliqué blocks for Barbara Brackman's Hospital Sketches BOM.
The June block was Pineapple. The pattern introduction also featured a great story about Walt Whitman visiting Civil War hospitals in Washington, DC. Highly recommended reading!
My fabric choices don't look so great in the photograph, but the blue print on a white background does show up better in person. If I were doing the block over, I think I'd choose a different fabric, maybe a with a light blue background. Learning about appliqué fabric choices was one of my goals for this project, and I've already learned lots!
The July block was Mountain Laurel. I finished prepping all the leaves yesterday. I just need to make the bias stems for each batch of leaves and I'll be ready to stitch everything in place.
The next block in the series is Tennessee Rose. I doubt I'll finish Mountain Laurel and get a good start on the rose before a new block is introduced this coming Wednesday. It's OK, I'll just keep working through at my own speed! It's all about the process, not the result - right?
