This block measures 10" square and will be shipped off this week to the IQFOI which will be held in June. The finger nails were thread painted. I wanted the hand to stick out, so I only added a small amount of regular cotton batting to the hand and arm. It is backed with a piece of calico as requested.
Our friday group will be working on Cathedral window blocks, so I'm thinking batiks for this beautiful block. When it's completed, I will post a picture here.
