This is hand pieced which worked really well for me although I was not that pleased with the applique melons - I have had much better results with some of the previous blocks.
Machine pieced with reverse applique - quite pleased with this one although it is difficult to get the points sharp on such small diamonds.
Not that happy with this one especially the applique diamonds but have decided to live with it for now at least.
My word - what an endurance test!! This took me hours! It was my first attempt at the freezer paper method of foundation piecing but I was really quite pleased with it.
