I’ve finished four applique blocks that will go into one unit of the Keeping. My plan is to make four of these units which will each measure 24″ square, to set into a quilt.
Here’s a picture of my first idea for filler blocks
I’m not sure I’m happy with any of it right now! The idea to make multi coloured leaves on the vine makes it look almost like a string of Christmas lights, so perhaps it needs some flower buds and/or circles? I like the idea of the flying geese being all one colour, although whether this colour will remain with this set of applique is a question. The star block was originally to be a basket block, and I think I should have stuck with that idea. The colours all looks too blendy! I’ll have to wait till I finish more applique blocks and play again with filler blocks to see what two units side by side my look like.
