In the Nesting Robin Challenge that I joined, we were to make Flora/Fauna blocks this month. I completed the Tree of Life block I've been working on. I used needle turn applique for the trunk, and decided to use invisible thread and a blanket stitch on the machine, to sew it down - finally completed that step today.
More Flora/Fauna blocks - three pomegranates sewn next to some of last month's triangle blocks..
Here's my layout so far. Squares, triangles, & flora/fauna. The blank spaces will have more blocks as a type of block we'll need to make is revealed each month.
