I did inking during month 5. I practiced words, banners that go around the words, and silhouettes. None of them have made it to the center of my blocks as yet. I'm doing my ink work on a piece of muslin and will applique it to the centers of the blocks. I'm still undecided which of the them I want to use. I plan to wait until more blocks are completed and see if that will help with the decision.
