    Well, my plan is ready… fabrics chosen for block 1 and some pieces pressed onto freezer paper. I embroidered they berry vine. I love the batik fabric for the vase! For appliqué, I am using the freezer paper/starch technique. For my Rosa’s tools, I use a fondue fork and a flat head screwdriver!

      Jo Anne, I love your fabric selection! Can you share information on the dark background fabric? Name, etc. Thank you.

      Georgia, thank you! This background is from Northcott Fabrics called Simply Neutral Black Lines. Thank you, Barbara and Redshoes24 for your kind comments.

    in a circle corners. HelenW

      I found a short cut to making berries while watching TV….. I cut out my circles and did the running stitch and left a thread tail. I then will insert the disc pull the thread. I’m using Acorn fabric spray ( because I own it), press, remove the disc and press again. There are 30 of one fabric and 11 of another. Glad that’s done!

        Elizabeth, I like your suggestion in making the circles in one sitting. I actually was dreading them being so small! However, no problem. 30 circles plus finished and turned out great! Did not use the spray, too late to go and pick some up. On to the next step.

            Joyce, You should be really happy with the way your center area turned out. Beautiful vase fabric. The white leaves seem to me to not have enough contrast in color to the background. You could do an outline stitch in a green colored thread or do some
            color crayon in a green color lightly on the fabrics and heat set with an iron to make it permanent. If you do that put a piece
            of parchment paper or teflon pressing sheet on the colored area so the crayon does not get on the iron. If you have not heard
            of using color crayons to color fabric, check out Crabapple Hill Studio for some free videos on the technique. HelenW

            Thank you Helen. I had questioned my choice there and I think you're right.

          Not all stitched down yet. Had trouble picking my greens. Believe it or not my stash and the fabric store didn’t have what I wanted. I did find some cute little bees on one of my fabric. Check them out.

I only have to baste down the 1/8" stems, then I'll move on to leaves. The dark background was hard to work with. I probably won't use a dark background for any other blocks.

            Well that was fun! All needle turn appliqué. Loved the perfect circle templates! I decided on darker gray background for sawtooth and will do that again on next set. I am using lighter grays as backgrounds, except center has a very pale blue wave. Now I have several weeks to admire it.
