What materials did you use? Cotton fabric & thread for piecing. Superior Thread, "The Bottom Line" This thread is wonderful for hand applique. 60 wt. Poly

What are you most proud of? How it all came together. How the hand applique turned out. My machine do not like all of the seams. So, I wanted this one to be just so. Hence, hand applique.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure that if you have dark fabrics in your plate, that you DO back your center so you do not have those fabrics showing through. I know I said this before, but, this is a very good point. :-) Just a note; I have not been trimming my blocks. I will wait until I am ready to put them all together. ( I do check them for size, as I go.)

This is really a lovely block, I do like the idea of the corners it make the whole block so much more eyecatching!!

Love the color combination. The green conors really make your plate pop!

Didn't see this before, so much gets published but I love your corners. Think I am going to try that on some of the more boring blocks. Great idea x

Thank you Lesley. For me, it puts more of a spot light on the center. Have fun with it.
