I knew I'd like those pieced backgrounds Denise! They look great!
I have another block I"m working on for a quilt center. I wanted to fuse it and button-hole stitch it but thought I should do fine hand applique - which I can do and I'm pretty good at it but it is so time consuming. I felt guilty not doing it the "correct" way but then I met with some fellow quilters and one of them took me aside and in a very firm voice said - but Denise - IT'S YOUR QUILT. Funny that really stuck with me, she was right, it gave me permission to do what I wanted and so far it's coming out nice. It's over 150 pieces of applique but at least it's started
Hello, February block has been posted. Found some fabric in my stash with stars to make my flower centers. They were not all perfectly centered but it makes it look more "interesting". That's my answer and I'm sticking to it
