I confess to being a person that dissects and studies things more than most. Okay--I'm anal-retentive and obsess about the most minor of things.
Any how, my question of the day is what type of lily do you think is January's block and what is the circle in relation to the lily? At first, I thought it might be the stamen but the flower is in the closed position. :
Or perhaps this is a lily that I have never seen that never fully opens or it is a made-up version of a lily and now everyone knows why it takes me so long to finish a block! :shock:
Still working on my Jan block. I am a newbie at needle turn applique. I have done other methods of applique, thought I would try this. Sure is different. So far my favorite means of applique has been raw edge, with blanket stitch , either machine or hand.
I spent the weekend trying a few methods of hand applique and have the star completed!!!! Not done yet, but off to a good start. I posted my progress in my profile. Hopefully by the end of the this week I can post a completed block. I found using a light stablizer was just what I needed!!!
