    Month one is finished. I will add buttons to some of the flowers after it is quilted.
    This was a great way to try the technique of using Print and Piece Fuse Lite for the applique motifs. I plan to go back to needle turn as I find it faster and less tedious, only because I have been doing it for years. I will say, however, that Karen Kay Buckley Perfect Circles worked like a charm. I had never used them before and will continue to do so. Quick and easy with great results.

      Bonnie, Get in a habit of clicking on the photos. Most of them get partially cut off, but when you click on them it enlarges the whole picture. I saw the bottom border. Yes, it is there. Good job. Great selection of fabric colors. HelenW

    For some reason, the photo was cut off when it uploaded. Trust me, there is a lower sawtooth border.

      It's there. Just not on the thumbnail. Looks great!

    Just got home from 10 days away. Today was cold and rainy, something Florida girls are not used to. I stuck to my sewing machine and watched Earth vs the Flying Saucers, among other vintage TV.

            My January block is finished! I am using a fat quarter bundle called Folk Friends that i bought from TQS and then adding from my stash. I am doing needle turned hand appliqué. So much fun!

            I was inspired by Iren's comment about the lush gardens of Kenya and have decided to make mine with the west African fabrics I have here in Niger. Cutting some flower motifs from the fabric as well.

              Brilliant idea! This looks lovely. The vase looks like a woven basket.

            Updated - I will make my fence as if it is the rays of the sun as we live in sub-Sahara Niger where we don't have many lush gardens but we have lots of sun. This is my first time doing needle turn so some of this will be done with that technique and some raw edged applique. Hope to attach the flowers and stems this week. I do not have access to all the supplies here so using what I have to make the stems and apply the leaves and flowers.

                Lovely - love your flower color choices - that's what I've chosen so far. I like your saw tooth border in all green tones. The original scrappy quilt is stunning, but it overwhelms my sensory system and focus. I'm thinking of even using one color and pattern so the saw tooths frame the center not compete with it. Thank you!

                Love your updates to the layout. I did the same by adding berries and a few minor flower changes. I really like your Green border and black vase.

                I'm with you. Still looking for a few more fabrics. I enjoy seeing the diversity which stimulates creativity and personal choices.

                I was easily overwhelmed too because I'm working from my stash. But I progressed in this order focusing on one section at a time: stems (one fabric), vase, flowers and leaves at upper right, lower right flowers and leaves, berries, center flowers, left hanging fushia and the big flower upper left last. Everything is turned under using apliquik method and now I'm machine stitching everything down. I'm waiting to pick out border fabrics after the center is done. This is the first applique project I have done in 15 years! Yikes. I won't post a photo until the very end.
                GOOD LUCK!

              Michelle, Looks like you have everything you need, time to get going.What are you using for the background fabric? Should be blooming before you know it.
