two I'd almost forgotten
I was looking through my blocks and realised i hadn't posted these two blocks that were finished a while ago.
I had been anxious about doing the first one as i was unsure how to end the bias fronds. I found if i allowed about 3/8 inch to turn under at the tips and interlocked them with the opposite frond at the stem they looked OK. I did use fabric glue to hold them in-place while i stitched. It made the stems quite stiff in placesbut it came out completely, once finished, after a long soak.
I couldn't resist using the "target" fabric for the second block as the design was the perfect size for the pattern,
I still have two blocks to post, one is completed and the other partially done,but i began joining all the blocks together in strips, but i will leave that picture for later.
