Tapestry - Textile - Applique Quilt Block
This one is a departure from my previous ones, with less intense colors, the lacy look of the openwork applique, and some little bits of non-batik calico. One of the trickiest things, in doing the sewing, was this: look at where the red squiggle goes through the holes of the openwork. I had to first sew the upper left part of the openwork and the center and right portions of it, then the squiggle, then the lower left side of the openwork - all with the squiggle already threaded through, but still keeping it out of the way of what I was currently sewing. And one decision I made which was very different from previous blocks, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, was to sew the very pale openwork part with very dark thread, a mix of dark green, navy blue and dark brown. (For more - interesting & lovely - information, see descriptions for Applique 1 and Applique 2.)
