Tiny Tuesday - Snowball Wreath


This is Midget Block number 57.  It is called Snowball Wreath.  I finished it on the way to Cancun.  The star in the background is paper pieced and then the little circle are four patches that are shaped into circles before being appliqued.
I used the freezer paper on the outside technique for this one, and I am liking it a lot now that I have gotten the hang of it.  I think I will order some of the glue that comes in the little needle tip squeeze bottle to keep the pieces in place better. Doesn't the block look even better in Cancun?  This was the view from the balcony in our room.

The snowball wreath is so pretty! And looks like you had a lovely vacation! I tried posting on for the "pink piece" but doesn't seem to take it - but anyway I enjoyed, as usual! (I'll try again.) I think it went on and then off.

Such a wonderful blok, I can't believe how small it is. Wow, how difficult it must be to work on that scale.
