Hand Satin Stitching Flower Appliques

These little flower shapes were cut for fusible applique.  Of course, I goobered that up so they didn't adhere properly.  I didn't think to machine stitch them down till after the piecing was done and this quilt is too big to be maneuvering around like that.  The fusible stuff on the back makes a booger to sew through, too.  On the bright side, it's pretty & cheerful and there are twenty blocks which makes for plenty of mindless tv stitching and quality time with my hubby.

I'm also so glad I selected a picture where my seams don't line up!

A Few More Blocks

Got a few more blocks done over the weekend.  This should be going quickly, but I tend to be a plodder and mistake prone.  Still liking it though.

Colors are lighter and brighter than they appear but this is the best I could get without flash on a cloudy, rainy day.  Hope the sun peeps out soon.

Linking to Judy Laquidara's Design Wall Monday and looking forward to checking out everyone's work.

WIP Wednesday

Just finished the test block for my new project and I liked it so much I had to post...for the first time in months.  So here it is:

Yummy batiks.  I think I'm going to like this quilt.  Linking to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced where there are all sorts of gorgeous things to see.
