Here is where we keep things real. This was my first attempt at the block. I was doing the reverse applique and got to this point and realized that I wanted to switch the orange and the white placement because I wanted to block to read Orange and not White with a little bit of orange. So I cut two more squares and was ready to start over and realized that I just wasn't digging all of that cutting. It wasn't so much the time it took to cut out the reverse applique, rather it was just driving me nuts that no matter how hard I tried, I wasn't able to cut out the inside of that applique and still have it look straight and even. I just felt like this was such a pretty design and I wasn't doing it justice with my not so straight edges. So ya, my need for "even" got the better of me and I switched to regular fusible applique.
So that is my Aurifil July Block!!! You can find Shruti's fantastic pattern for this block right over here and then be sure to pop over here to read Shruti's interview. And if you make your own Reverse Applique Block (or regular applique if you follow my lead) , be sure and enter a picture of it at Pat's blog ;) Every entry is eligible to win a Large Aurifil Thread Kit!!!!!
So excited to see this rainbow of blocks come together!!! Can't wait for next month's block ;)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
