I decided to bring some handwork along on my vacation this week.
When hubby informed me there would be "carry on" luggage only, I knew I had to do a litte prep work in advance.
I wasn't willing to have my applique' scissors confiscated so I pre-marked,cut and basted my block at home before leaving.
This block has narrow fern-like petals/leaves with lots of inside and outside curves to it. I've slowly worked my way around the block using needle turn applique'. As you can see in the picture below, I'm making good progress - just one small section and the center to turn before this block is completed.
I gathered the block up in my left hand while working, so the block is very wrinkled right now. Later this weekend when I return home I will give it a good pressing, square it up with my rotary cutter and post a picture of the finished block.
