Three together

I'm somewhat behind with posting about the Splendid Sampler blocks, having only just caught up with sewing the twice weekly ones and with list of possible bonus blocks to make.

The bonus blocks might become very important in the future as potential replacements for the not so very good ones.  Here's the latest three

I'm very happy with the birds in the sky, so good to be in my comfort zone with raw edged appliqué but, big but here, have spent most of today making the one with the yellow cross using a technique known as foundation paper piecing.

The result is accuracy, but oh thank goodness there only one block to cut and sew. And its not 6.5' square, no idea where the edges went but I'm certainly not making another one.
