Another UFO that I've been working on. This one dates back to 2009.
My friend E and I liked this block from Michele Hill's book, William Morris in Appliqué, so we both started one. Not sure if she finished hers either.
For mine I thought it would make a great wall hanging to cover my closet door.
Years ago when we were painting this room, we discovered that the old fashioned door actually had a glass insert that had been painted over. So we scraped the paint off and now I can look into my closet and see all my clothes. Hmmm, I guess that's why the glass was painted over.
Ultimately, I'd like to make a stained glass insert, but I never seem to have the time. So a wall hanging will be much faster, maybe.
These stems are taking forever! I even re-drew them. The book was written with the intent of fusing these pieces, but I'm a needle turner and so I just had to work a little harder to get it perfect.
I'm working on my second block now. Then I need to come up with a way to extend it three more inches to cover the glass. But I'll wait till I finish the second block to figure that out.
Take care, Brandie
