The Desperate Housewife's Quilt Week 46 - Topiary


Welcome to week 46 of the 'The Desperate Housewife's Quilt'. Todays block is about Foundation Piecing. Remember, this is not a quilt-a-long. Just follow the blog every week and pick and choose which blocks you would like to make. I will be injecting some uniqueness into traditional blocks, applique, three dimensional, crazy and thread-art blocks. If you make a block please post it on the Flickr group for everyone to enjoy. Also, I have this nifty button under each post that allows you to save the post as a PDF.

Be sure to visit this week's Guest Blogger and their wonderful block.

  3. You had some fun with these settings! I think I prefer the ones that deemphasize the line of arrows. The green pinwheely one with lots of red is my fav.
