I am not adding graphic here, because I think everyone doesn't need an encore on that....but this...
well you tell me....lol
Thanks to Madame Samm for inviting me to guest-blog.
Are you ready for another block?
This one is inspired by the sumptious interiors of theaters and opera houses. It is 12-1/2'' and is called
The little semi-circles representing the audience are perfect for scraps!
To make Encore, you will need:
- 3 (2-1/2'' x 12-1/2'') background rectangles
- 3 (1-1/2'' x 12-1/2'') white rectangles
- 3 (1-1/2'' x 12-1/2'') accent rectangles
- paper-backed fusible web
- tear-away stabilizer
- applique thread
Repeat to make 3 semicircle units.
Join all rectangles to produce the block shown.
What can you do with this block? You can lay multiple identical blocks side by side - enough to fill a theater!
Try a dynamic background!
Or vary the background rectangles and turn some blocks upside down...
Or rotate every other block. There are lots of possibilities....
I've been experimening with more fusible applique on a small scale like this in my next pattern, so if you have enjoyed these blocks follow my blog and stay tuned!
I'll be posting a sneak peek of my next fabric collection so make sure to stop by!
Happy sewing and thanks again to Madame Samm!
