The first applique block is a saffron crocus. I embroidered the roots and added a green butterfly.
The cherries block has a little ladybug on a leaf.
The pears have little brown bits embroidered at the base of the fruit and a bee has been added.
There are a couple to go and then they can be appliqued to the border fabric. Then I have to make sixteen four pointed stars to applique between the framed fruit and flower applique blocks. All I can say is yahoo - the end is in sight! I've enjoyed testing the pattern for Missie but I'm really eager to finish a project or two and maybe start a project or two! If you want more information about the pattern it is available from Traditional Primitives.
Tomorrow I'll publish the patterns for the side setting blocks in the Value Proposition Hexagon Quilt Along and the following Friday will be the 18th and final block pattern. Time has just flown by and I'm starting to think about another quilt along for 2015. I've got a few ideas fermenting but would love to hear from you. Are you interested in another quilt along and if so what would you like to see - hexagons, piecing, applique, foundation piecing or a mish mash of techniques? I reply to every comment so if you don't hear back from me it means that you are a no reply blogger.
Time to run so until tomorrow, happy sewing!
