|48. Fair Play: Canadian Suffrage|
All the fabric is from my stash (mostly small pieces of scrap). This block was both pieced and appliqued. I pieced the background 4 patch first. I then pieced another smaller 4 patch. I centered a circle template on the blue 4 patch and cut around leaving a 1/4 inch margin. Then I threaded around the margin and pulled for my circle. I cut the center of my template out, then leaving a quarter inch margin on my fabric, cut out my center fabric. Using a Fons and Porter glue stick and snipping here and there, I glue basted the center fabric of the ring to the template. The fabric ring was then centered and glue basted on to the background 4 patch and appliqued. After applique, I cut out the back and pulled the ring template out. Lots of fun making this block. Using applique techniques I forgot I had.
The block still needs to be cut down to 8.5 inches.
Fair Play is a four patch block given the name by the Ladies' Art Company in the early 20th century.
