Rule 4 finished and Rule 5 teaser



Made it thru the week from you-know-where in school yesterday for which I'm thankful. And was finally able to decide what I wanted to do for the pos/neg aspect of Rule 4. =) Knew I wanted it to be fairly simple and make a background for what i planned to do as applique. Ended up making a checkerboard of the yellow gingham and a couple of different WOW's.

I appliqued a pink butterfly to the checkerboard as my hand applique and then embroidered antenna on. Not real happy tho with the body of the butterfly so I'm probably going to redo that. And am thinking of adding another smaller butterfly or two off to the left of teh block (as fusible appliques).

And since I'm now on spring break (not going anywhere 'cause i have to work and get homework done), I've started on my block for Rule 5. Know what I'm gonna do....just need to get it finished....lol.....at any rate here is my teaser.............

I have always loved gingham and your blocks are so cute that it reminds me of when I was sewing for my girls. Love your blocks and love your teaser. I see circles. LOL

It is so soft and dainty looking. You are really doing a nice job.

I think I'm going to LOVE your circles because your teaser fabrics are adorable.

Your positive/negative interpretation is one I wouldn't have even thought of. It is perfect with your butterfly. I think adding a butterfly or two more will be perfect.

Beautiful work with your pastels even though they are not usually your thing.
