QJ - Floral Applique - Part V

QUILT JOURNAL - Floral Applique - Part V

November 2009 - January 2010

Four years later - 

I dug it out again -

The Bird's Nest/Roses block had been prepped for hand appliqué –
I would have to redo that for machine applique -

I had part of the two Leaves/Berries blocks done -
I just needed to finish the stems -
And decide what I wanted to do for the "berries" –

Yellow -  ?

Orange - ?

I liked the Orange -

So - by January 2010 –

Both Leaves/Berries blocks were done –

I had finished the Leaves/Berries block for the right side - 

Decided against an Acorn block -

And made a second Leaves/Berries block for the left side.

Each Leaves/Berries block has twelve leaves -

Each leaf is a different fabric -

Twenty-four leaves -

Twenty-four different fabrics - 

The orange "berries" are clusters of french knots - 
(I wish I had thought to use variegated floss) - 


  1. super autumn leaves! I am very excited that you get when you pack!

  2. That's just lovely -- the orange is so pretty! Nice job.


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
