The quilt is a stunner isn't it ? - so full of vintage charm and character and I especially love the gorgeous swag border!
I'm not sure whether to call this "Block 1" or "Block A-1" but have used the "Block 1" label for now.
So here is the completed block.
I've gone with repros in red and poison green because I love them and have quite a few in the stash to use up!
I have used the back basting needleturn applique method. It's a method I've enjoyed using before. For me, it is easy, fuss-free and makes my placement accurate. But I do know there are other methods that work very well too :)
Here are some pics of the process for this block:

Thanks so much for the opportunity to make this quilt and ... roll on next month's block!
