I wanted to do all curved blocks but I broke down and used this pattern with mostly straight. seams.
This is my first time using silkies and I am still trying to figure out the best way to do it. I have been using the silkie as piece one and appliquéing over it. Allie suggested piecing the block normally and then appliquéing the silkie on top and covering the edges with trim or ribbon. I will try that next!
