It's done. Two blocks are fused and ready to finish the edges of the designs. I have never worked so hard on a quilt before. Tomorrow block two comes in and I'll work on that. I'm going to start having nightmares of peacocks and flowers after this.
I started satin stitching block one. I don't know. At this point, I say just do the stupid satin stitching had have done with it. I have tried dozens of decorative stitches via two machines but nothing works out around the edges neatly. Invisible thread just makes a mess. A small zigzag eats the edges of the design.
Do I rip out the dark thread around the light leaves? I couldn't find a light green that worked. If I wanted to cheat, I could use one blue on the birds instead of outlining each color fabric.
Once again, I'm making this much harder than I should. I'm walking away for now.
