On Saturday evening I took part in the #saturdaynightcraftalong on Instagram and was busy prepping these TINY Suffolk Puffs ready to hand applique into place. The cut circles are 1.25" in diameter, so they were a bit fiddly to make. I'm glad there were only 5 of these to make for the faces of these cute angels! Once the panel for block 4 had been embroidered, appliqued, and trimmed to size, it was time to prepare a selection of 1.5" squares. I used 9 different festive fabrics, and machine pieced them using Aurifil 50wt thread. (I'm still using the same Superior Titanium Microtex needle that I used for piecing the 3" Ohio star blocks!)...
...do you want to see a little peek of block 4? There are 5 of these sweet angels on this block, but I couldn't show them all on this photograph! The stocking is a hand painted wooden button and will be stitched into place once the quilt is completed.
