Base for block 1

 
I worked on the base for the block and was able to get it laid out. Next, I need to baste it to the muslin and then start to add applique to it.

It looks wonderful!!! Great job.
Are you using warm and natural batting under it too?

It looks wonderful!! Whatever you do, don't baste the batting on now - it is way too thick and too difficult to do!! Put it on the muslin and start your stitches.

Take care!

I totally agree with Paulette about not basting it to the batting right now. It makes it to difficult to embroidery through all those layers. It is best to do your applique and embroidery on the wool basted to your muslin or whatever you use under the wool as the base.

Your block looks really great, aren't you excited to get started with the stitching.
