QJ - Floral Applique - Part I-D

Design Wall Monday - 9/26/11

QUILT JOURNAL - Floral Applique - Part I-D

Then came -
Bird’s Nest with Roses – 
Here is the "Bird's Nest" part prepped for hand applique -


Leaves/Berries - 
I got the block cut out and prepped for hand appliqué -

and then I worked on the Irises -


Ellen helped me with the colors and shading of the petals -
The center of the one on the right is slightly padded - 


Close-up of the top left side -


There's another blue "rolled" bud -


The "over/under" part of this block was even more fun
than the Morning Glories - ;))


And the snail - don't forget the snail -


By the time I finished this block -

I had spent EIGHT months - 

Made FOUR blocks - 

And prepped TWO more.

I was TIRED of applique -

The rest of this sucker would have to wait until I retired –

So -

I stopped working on it in September 1997 - 

And I let it sit -

Very pretty, but I know what you mean about burning out on applique.
