D-12 Crossed Swords
This wasn't such a baddy. I paper pieced the main body and then tried out back basting appliqué to add the corner squares. (Leave your paper in until you've done the appliqué as this is your pattern and placement) I liked that I didn't have to make FP templates or worry about getting it in the right place with this method. I used some Gutterman's Hand quilting thread to do the basting and a very thick quilting needle, think it was an 8 or smaller in number. Made nice holes I could see :))
I improved by the last square, the first is a little wobbly looking but it looks okay in real life. Scanned pictures always are picky. I love the pretty fabric which is from Jo Morton. 19 pieces.
