I made these two blocks on Sunday as part of my catch-up with this BOW. This one (below) London Square was a snap, paper foundation pieced, my biggest problem was selecting fabrics, but I think these work quite well.
This Louisiana block (below) was hand pieced because my usual method of paper foundation piecing, while very accurate quite often leaves you with a lot of fabric in the middle. By hand piecing I was able to achieve a nice flat centre. I followed the very excellent Hand piecing with Crispy tutorials (plenty of detailed photos) , Chris also has some excellent tutorials on applique in her blog: Crispy Quilts.
I haven’t made any further progress on Seven Sisters, she is a very lonely block at the moment, with one sister appliqued and waiting for the rest of her sisters :)
