Susan: February CQJP2013

Here are some new seams from February's block: SeamB5 SeamB6 Here's the last seam, and the whole block. SeamB7 BFinished I'm really not satisfied with the seam on the bottom. It's fine as a seam, but it seems too stark? Too primitive? But it's in, so it stays. On to March.

I'd probably say it seems too fiddly- a little disjointed with so many color changes.

The chevrons connecting the dots is pretty cute!

I like the contrast of the geometric seams against the soft curves of the swags and the chain stitch. I think that tension makes one focus on the silky even more so. Nice having the yellows on blue and the blue on the yellow.

I'll bet it will be fine once you have everything together.

I actually rather like the seam on the bottom. It is a strong seam and gives weight to the bottom edge. I also love the broken zig-zag stitch on the polka dot fabric too.
All in all, a lovely block for February.

Thanks, ladies. I appreciate your comments and encouragement. The yellow on the polka dot fabric kind of reminds me of a sergeant's stripes. =) I think as the blocks go together, probably no one thing will stand out, you're right. That's what happened with the Flower Fairies.

I love the little girl, and the seam on the left next to her picture is really interesting. I agree - it will blend once all your blocks are together. Really a nice block. To me, very imaginative.

I love what you have done so far sure everything will blend together when you are all finished. Love how your silkie stands out.

I think the deal on that bottom seam is that the design is okay, but the threads are thicker than I normally use. The gold is verithin velvet, and the blue is a #5 perle. Now that I have categorized the problem, I can move on. LOL
