SAL Update

The SAL blocks have escaped their box and jumped up on the design wall...
It took a little bit of switching about of individual blocks to get the various designs in a layout I was happy with but the basic configuration of large and small blocks is to Anni's plan.  As I've used fabrics from the scrap basket without any real planning, just going with what I liked for the particular shape on the day as long as it kind of fit in the general tonality of the other blocks, they go together pretty well I think...no one jumps out as a jarring non-fit with the others.

I have had the centre square background pieced for a while and now the blocks are all up together I'm going to have fun sorting out which fabrics to use for the centre applique (once I've finished cutting out the templates)...

Definitely not within time of the SAL but not forgotten...

Happy Stitching...

It's looking great, Annette! There's such a lot of work involved in all that stitching so I think you're doing brilliantly!!!! ( I joined one challenge this year...I'm still finishing stage 1 , mist of the other girls are either on the last stage or finished to flimsy stage...too bad...I'll get there one day! Lol)
