Combination Blocks

Many of the combination blocks use two different techniques to complete them. The techniques I used are applique, reverse applique, machine piecing and foundation piecing.

As a guide to making these blocks I used the one posted by Anina at thatquilt.blogspot. She has a very unique way of interpreting how to sew each block that I found very enjoyable and very doable. Like me she has a dislike of hand sewing unless completely unavoidable. Hence she becomes very creative in her approach to making each block.

Below I have placed a photo of each block I made that uses a combination of techniques.
