Block 7

The beginnings of block 7. This one will have pretty blue flowers.
I have to say, its all very well having the pieces pre cut and fused, it does save a lot of time but, there is something to be said for selecting and maybe  fussy cutting your own fabrics. I find myself quite dissatisfied now at this point. I think it may have something to do with that missing step. Or maybe it's the background fabric, that insists on puckering! No matter how often I press the fabric, And no matter how often I lift the presser foot to ease the needles journey around the curves. I still get puckers.

How frustrating! Have you tried loosening your bobbin tension? Just a thought, but may not be the answer.

It does sound frustrating!! I wonder if you used a stabiliser on the back, if that would help with those puckers?
