A quick post before I dash out to my guild Patchwork meeting...gosh, the week goes by so quickly!...
I worked on this block yesterday, and I think I'll leave it like this for now.
When I stitch the blocks together, I'll see if it needs more done on it.
I intend to do decorative thread seam treatments when the blocks are joined together, and that will make the blocks look more embellished..
I have noticed that most of the old antique CQ quilts don't have a lot of embellishing on them.
Pam, has just been lucky to pick up a beautiful antique CQ quilt that dates back to 1888, pop over and have a look, you will see that there's not too much embellishing on that quilt.
Whether to very heavily embellish or not is a personal choice...last year I entered my Victorian Fan Quilt in a show to be judged and it was marked down because they said it was too busy..
The comment was..."It would have benefited from some quiet spaces"...so there you go!.
