Angel Purse Continued

Angel Purse

I didn't quite finish the border on the left-hand side of this block. Had to stop and make dinner.
Anyway, to continue on with my discussion on balancing a block, another way to do that is to do variations of the same stitch.

If you look closely at the border on the top right, it's a fan stitch. I used a different fan stitch on the bottom left corner. This offers a bit of visual repetition without being redundant.

I'll have time to work on this some more later but for now, I'll leave you with pages 14 & 15 of my vintage needlework catalog:
