    Please post your Block 17 photos here.

    I really broke out of the mold on this one - orange everywhere, even the Razzle Dazzle thread is orange! This one wasn't hard, except for changing the thread color so often - 6 different colors!

    If anyone needs help with working scrolls, I took a few pics that might help. Just let me know and I will post those too.

    Oh gosh...both of you have done lovely blocks! I'm going to tackle this baby today...its a hard one to pick the fabs for. I'll drag the whole sack into the den and let DH help..he loves that part!

    Thanks for all the details Lesley. I'm thinking that on the little teeny scrolls (my block is 7") that I'll have to clip a little bit. I think I can overlap several of the pieces though and get a nice point.

    Here are some pics of a scroll I did - it wasn't for this block, but the principle is the same. Hope they help.

    This is for a scroll on Block 20, but as I said, the principle is the same. Take the pattern and put it on the fabric to draw round

    I know you will have your scroll already drawn on the background. I don't usually draw the scroll on scroll fabric when stitching in this direction, but when the scroll goes in the opposite direction I do draw round the pattern to help know where to snip into that tight point

    The tail end of this one has another piece stitched over it, so it doesn't need to be stitched under

    Thanks Lesley....thats the direction I'm going...its the tight inner part that concerns me. I think that a couple of the skinny pointy points are covered with another piece on that end, so that helps. :wink:

    Ah, then you might have to put a mirror next to your 'puter, that might just help unless there is anyone else here doing needleturn and left handed who could help.

    There is no shame in leaving this one until later and you have a bit more experience.

    Once you have made more leaves and heart shapes, you will have built up some confidence and the scroll won't be so daunting.

    Here is mine. This took me about 12 hours...I'm slow. It is NOT my favorite, I don't think it is really pretty compared to the others, but guess what....its going IN the quilt!
