Vintage Home BOM – plates & all the blocks so far

This time the  Vintage Home blocks are plates, using the porthole technique, which I hadn’t tried before.

The instructions in the magazine were very clear and I’m pleased with the results.  I especially like the one with the boats fabric!

There is also a larger plate with paper pieced petals around the rim, and I really liked this one.  I intended the centre of this one to be one of the smaller plates, but used the wrong template when I cut it out – oops!

I think it was a happy accident though.  I wouldn’t have planned to put the zoo animals in the centre of the florals, but I like it.  It’s a plate I would love to own.

Finally, here’s a picture of all the blocks so far.  I spent ages trying to get them all in the photo using my ‘proper’ camera, but the best picture was a quick snap with my phone!
