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. :lol: :lol:

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:

Can you tell where I am in the block? :)

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. :roll:

Me too, Mary Kay! What kind of stabilizer did you use?

:D 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!!! :D

The blue vase and the yellow star go together perfectly.
