Free Motion Rudbeckias and Blackcurrants
Work is ticking ahead on the new project. The basic idea is to do panels with two colours, divided by a thin strip using up small scrap oddments. It was fun reworking the rudbeckias design on yellow - all very sunny and summery.
As for the burgundy red, the colour suggested blackcurrants, so that's what I did. The leaves are fancier than the real thing, but the sprigs of fruit are fairly accurate. I have spent so many hours in my time with my head stuffed in a blackcurrant bush that I didn't need to to look at pictures or draw a sketch. The fruit just grew out of the machine as I sewed. Fab fun.

and Lorna's blog Sew Fresh Quilts for TGIFF. I feel a bit cheeky linking up to TGIFF because it's not finished... but this block is finished, and she asked me to link up, which was very sweet of her. Thank you Lorna!
