Lesson 2
Here you can see what I have done until now.
I like the seam treatment in the upper right corner and the purple/green one next to the creme silk with flowers. The seam on the right side looked nice by evening but in daylight I think it is not strong enough, but I don't know what to do to improve it. The seam with the wagonwheels I don't especially like, think they look a bit like jellyfish.......LOL
Now I am wondering what to do with the short seams on the outside of the block, especially the purple/cream and creme/green seam on the right side of the block, I have to avoid that the eye leads to the outside of the block.
I would love to hear your comments.
I have just printed out lesson 3 and looking forward to
start with doing some SRE.

Your seams looks super to me! also the jellyfish wheels!!
The blocks gets more movement trough the stitching, very good.

Wilma, I think it may to early for you to worry about the eye sliding off the block. I haven't done this class of Sharons, but when you get to bead and button trails, I think that will solve your problems!
For the seam on the right side, some small, flat round buttons would add weight to the seam.
Having said that, I think you should let the block evolve a little more.

It's coming along beautifully, and I like all the seams. If you really believe that the seam on the right is too light, what about taking a darker color - maybe a rose or mauve or green - and doing a second feather, slightly off the first one? I agree with Jo that lots of things will resolve themselves as you finish the beading and embellishing.

I can see only beauty Wilma. You are going very well with the block. I only thought 'jellyfish' because you said it. They didn't look like them to me. Just a pretty seam.

Beads will lift the work if you think it needs something.
You could put the block aside for a day or two, then come back to it with fresh ideas. Maureen

I love your beautiful block. Your victorian colours are very gorgeous. I am looking foward to the progress.
