I've replaced the triangles at the sides of block 4 with a feather to link with the central block. Each feather has 22 lobes and there are eight of them. This little bounty of prepared lobes has taken me the best part of today and I've still only prepared 8 for each feather. The triangles seem a much better option now but having started, I shall finish!
Yesterday was spent redrawing the block and copying the new feathers onto the fabric.
You can see the old vase which has been whitened out.
I have an awful feeling I shall want to add something or other to the vase... Why can I not leave well alone?
