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) -
