June's Week 22: Liberated Leaf
I read the directions, then got sidetracked with testing what would happen if I cut a piece of fabric with a curve and resewed it back together (and repeated a few times). It was a good exercise and made me more comfortable with doing this block. I found it really helped me line up the fabric when I started the cut with a little straight area.
Tip: Remember to include the side veins in the leaf before you sew it to the stem. I had a little ripping to do as I was so concentrating on the curves in the leaves. I didn't have a strip of brown handy so I made my branch yellow.... I made our now 23-year old son a pair of pants out the branch material... he was probably 3- or 4-years old. 'lellow was his favorite color.
