B-7


Difficulty of block: moderate
Number of pieces: 9
Method used: hand appliqued

I didn't hit a home run with this World Series, but came pretty close.  Should one start by appliqueing the diamonds or the melons?  I went with the diamonds.  My thinking was if you had them positioned perfectly, then the melons would just drop into place.  The melons turned out to be a little too big and I had to do some fudging.

The large scale print you used for the diamonds and melons looks great! I wouldn't have been brave enough to try it, but it looks lovely in your block.

Another great DJ block. Your applique is beautifully done. I love brown and the two of these browns go well together - Hugs Nat
