Between-Meal Centerpiece Wrap-Up

I realized that, despite several updates about my Between-Meal Centerpiece project, I haven’t yet posted the final pics. Here it is, in all its glory. And by that, I mean it’s glorious that it’s finished. 🙂

As much as I like giving my projects as gifts, this one is for me. I love the colors, I love the size, I love the design.

The only thing I don’t love? My serious lack of blocking skills. I try and try, but I still need improvement.

In fact, most of the critical comments I got during judging for the contest (on several pieces) were related to my blocking. I think I’m just impatient to complete the project and don’t spend enough time on the blocking process. Any helpful hints or advice? What’s your blocking method?

This one got a second place ribbon at the contest. Here it is on display – you can also see a hint of one of my other projects peeking in at the right:
