“Something more.” That’s what one of my sampler blocks needed. Here’s the “before” shot:
I started with Cluck Cluck Sew’s No Point Star design (a free pattern!) and set it on point. I really like this block but as I pointed out in my last post, it wasn’t quite holding its own with the other sampler blocks made to date:
I decided to embellish the block with a flower fussy-cut from my focus fabric, seen here:
Now take a look at the block with the flower appliquéd in the center:
Better, yes? I’m especially liking that touch of green in the very middle of the blossom.
Here’s a shot of the embellished block with its companions:
I think it’s safe to say it’s holding its own now.
Oh yes, adding a bit of glamour is perfect!
I love it!! All your blocks are great! Hugs,
Lagniappe-a little something extra
It’s beautiful! I think it’s perfect. All of the blocks are beautiful!
Beautiful and so perfect!!
