Hazel’s Diary Quilt: Fair Weather (Block 10)

What a busy month this is turning out to be! The result: not much time spent in my sewing room. I did manage to finish piecing Fair Weather, Block 10 of Hazel’s Diary Quilt:

This is the second version. I didn’t like my first attempt, which had a different print where the blue squares are now. This version is much more pleasing to my eye.

Shelly Pagliai, designer of Hazel’s Diary Quilt, started with the traditional Weathervane quilt block and added an original appliqué design in the center:

That’s quite a bit of appliqué!

Before embarking on the handwork for this block I decided to test my choice of fabrics by photocopying them and cutting the shapes out of paper. Here’s my mock-up:

You have to imagine the red polkadot petal and black semicircle on all four flowers. The dollar coin in the center is a stand-in for what will probably be a solid red circle.

I’m eager to get started on this one! Then it will be back to work on those scalloped red frames. . .

    Holy cow! This square is hitting it out of the park. How DO you do this?? Not to be too whiny, why don’t I know how to do this. Well, I digress.
