B8 Another Maltaville block

B8
I now have 5 blocks finished and 5 more on the go. I feel like I am getting somewhere. The gorgeous green in this block was thankyou to Christine and a scrapbag I won on her blog. It is perfect and just gorgeous. I finished The bird block too.

Happy now. I even put a little yellow beak on my bird. A friend suggested that I try back basteing on the sewing machine for my applique. I must admit that I was hesitant but after trying I love it. I can see the hole guides so much easier and it is also easier to needle turn under.
Hope you are all enjoying your projects.
Cheers Lynne

I never heard of back basting on the machine. Back basting is my favorite applique method and I can see where the holes would be so much easier to see if done by machine. I might have to experiment. Any words of wisdom? I also love that green. Do you know who made it?

Beautiful blocks Lynne! I am not familiar with back basting, but it sounds like I need to check it out! :)
