The tale of two blocks - the right and wrong
This block is called C-2 "Streak of Lightning" I completed it last night. The inside diamond shaped are pieced but the two outside diamonds are appliqued on top when it is all stitched together. I used the Roxanne's glue to hold the two appliqued pieces in place instead of pins. It does work well. I had never used it before, although I had bought a small bottle of it not that long ago. After I finished it I brought it up to the scanner to be scanned, and -- I realized that I had appliqued the two top diamonds on facing in the wrong direction. So ---- I had to take them off, finding that the Roxanne's glue really did hold them on well. And I had to re-stitch them! I had a little wine spot on the muslin so I had to give it a little wash and iron after I finished it, so the edges are a little frayed -- and then I had to do it all again. So this block is a little worse for wear!
