    Please post your Block 16 photos here.

    Tried using 2 different Razzle DAzzle colors on this one - green & purple.

    I had real fun with this one - I didn't have any kind of print that would work in those little circles, so I hit on the idea of using a thick bleach and painting little circles to represent flowers on some of my plainer batiks.

    I used a very fine artists paint brush - some worked better than others, so do a few spares, as they still might 'run' together. I know that there is a bleach pen on the market (Amazon have them) but I haven't tried one of them so this was my solution.

    I let the bleach dry, then rinsed everything in cool water to get rid of any lingering bleach, before getting on with the applique.

    Here I am again - I got so far with my posting this morning and then everything froze and I couldn't get back. So the remaining pics are here:

    The centre circle is also a bleached flower

    Detail, I put embroidery round these circle (bleached) flowers to make them stand out. The pink 'Mums' are a recular quilting cotton, not a batik, but it was the only one I had that seemed to fit nicely.

    Very innovative using the bleach. I must remember that idea.

    Both blocks look beautiful.

    Wow and Wow. It is pretty. Gorgeous colors. I just starred at it for the longest time. There were so many things to take in.

    I didn't have the same type of fabs to use that Aie had, nor was I smart enough to do the bleach thing like Lesley...so this was my choice (along with some help from DH)

    I love those blocks, so innovative with that bleach tecnique. I like what you have done Lesley but might it not weaken the fabric?

    I know what you mean, Elle, we are always told that, but my bleach wasn't on there for more than about half a minute, and then I thoroughly rinsed them, and washed with a little dishwasher soap, so I can't think I have done lasting damage somehow.

    Patti, I love your colours/fabric choices.

    You will do just great. Its a learning curve, I have never done needleturn before so I have developed my own method. using freezer paper, it works a dream.

    I can't believe that what little bit you are doing with the bleach is damaging anything Lesley. Besides...by the time it starts to disentigrate...we'll all be like Elle said.......loooong gone. :D:

    Sounds as if your broadband speed is a bit slow at the moment. Can you check it?
