A Winner & Tutorial

Sorry it's taken me so long to announce the winner from my 1000th-ish post. Life got in the way. So the winner is





Jenny! Congratulations to you. Just leave a comment then I'll email you for the particulars.

Now, for the tutorial.
If you have chosen a background that is close to the color of your focus fabric and all seems to blend together (this photo is not a very good representation but will work out) not to worry. There's an easy way to fix it without scrapping the block.


Choose a light shade of gray. Using your original design trace, what I call, "outline" or "shadow" shapes on adhesive for varied areas of your block.
 Press adhesive onto gray fabric and apply to areas on your block.

It is not necessary to outline or shadow all around the block. Your eyes will fill in the rest.

I hope this helps will all the projects where needed.

What a cute tea pot - I love the fabric. It looks so real. Great idea for shading - I'll tuck that in my brain for future reference.
