Being new to liberated quilting, it's taken me a while to pluck up the courage to start this project! But when I found this block last week, I thought it had potential and put it up on my design wall. Today I decided that it was time to bite the bullet and play.
The block is from an applique class I did at a Quilt Expo in The Hague just after I first started patchwork. It is one of three or four blocks I brought home but I didn't have the confidence to take it any further. I still have to stitch the small dugong, but that will have to wait until I can buy some matching thread. I forgot to take a photo of the original block before I started playing with it, but it was just the dugongs with blue and yellow border pieces, which I've cut down a bit. The rest of the fabrics came from my drawer of leftover scraps.
There are very few triangles really, but I'm satisfied with it so far because it feels triangular.
