Starting the Hope Centre

As I make a start on the Hope centre block, I'm falling more and more in love with the texture of the linen backgrounds and Japanese woven fabrics for the applique.
 As always, there's lots of prep work to get done
Although my centre star looks dark in photos, in real life it has a lovely weave that off sets the pale pink linen beautifully 
 My next step is creating these surrounding doilies
I've folded in all the lines and now I'll stitch them down with large stitched to create the background grid look before placing applique over.
And here's my stack of prepped pieces waiting to be placed into position
I can't wait to show you the centre real soon.. 
Hope is a gorgeous blooming applique design, perfect for beginners. You can start this quilt anytime as a BOM or purchase the pattern outright. Simply click the image to learn more.
