WWI Block of the Month Block Four - Ladies Delight

I have been spending a lot of hours on the Shindig quilt this week but managed to piece the block for this project.

Only the stem of the applique is actually sewn in place - the star is just placed there for photography and the leaves and blue circle are just fused. I'll finish the sewing when the quilting is done.

The Ladies Delight block is another one I have never made. I toyed with the idea of swapping some of the white and blue pieces, but then realized it was done this way so the leaves cover only the background and none of the colored areas. Almost entirely Vicki Welsh's hand dyes (the streaked dark blue is actually a print), I think this makes a pretty block!

Love this block... but I'm really wondering about the shindig quilt. If you have been quilting, then that means you have backing fabric. I'm really curious.

Yes, this block looks appealing. The way you have the reds look like something has been peeled back/opened up. I hope to get to my version this weekend.
