The middle part of my block is done. Not pretty happy with it, but I embrace the imperfection and move on to finish it off as planned anyway. I still have a lot to learn on how to really hide those whip stitch from being visible too much at the front.
I tried using thimble as my fingertips were getting sore. But I think I am not used to it yet. It makes things go slower and a bit weird - I ended up pushing the needles with the finger with no thimble on. LOL.
By the end of this block, I did finally learned how to minimize the visible stitch.. maybe next time I'll have a go again and leave a better tips to share.. as for now, I do think that I still need to practice more.. it is kind of addictive once you have a clear objective for the pieces...Sometimes I didn't even realize the time when I start stitching - but I'd better be careful next time as it may cause injury for being too long in the smae position..LOL.
Anyway, this block is going to be appliquéd to a hand-quilted mini quilt soon. I have been meaning to try hand quilting too. Wish me luck.
but before that, how about a messy back photo of it...
Time to remove those papers...
Here is another photo at Floriade from the top of the ferris wheel
