Another fairly easy applique one. 

Here's a TUTORIAL with one method of doing applique. I do mine with freezer paper too but I iron it onto the right side of the fabric and then draw a pencil line around the freezer paper before I remove it. Then I have a guide line for turning my fabric under.

I cut my background a little bigger and trimmed it to 5" when I was done with the applique.

Pretty block, Jacy and Kris.  I'm very new to applique, so I'll probably try to do satin-stitch again.  It worked well for me on the bachelor buttons.  

Jacy, when I saw yours, I thought you had applique'd those umbrella girls on there!!  So yeah, nice fussy cuts.  :)

Thanks Kris and Carolyn, the fussy cuts were fun to do.

Carolyn, there's nothing wrong with machine applique, it's usually my first choice. I'm trying to do these with hand applique but I bet I will do some with the machine.

Jacy, your fussy cuts are wonderful. Hope you don't mind if I use your idea.

Shoot, this came out a bit big. When I sew the blocks together it's going to chop off the tips. I'll probably do it over but not right now. I needle turn appliqued this.

okay friends. I really went rogue on this one. This first pic tells a story of center sections that do not meet up. But lo and behold! I appliqued a thimble sized circle over that little mish mash and renamed it "Aunt Exies's Sexy Fox" instead of Aunt Exie's Phlox.  You know how you reach that point in your life when you look sexier with clothes on than clothes off? My little thimble sized cover up does exactly that. To heck with rules. I want my Dear Jane to be stunning. If I had to stick with the plain Phlox I would not be doing her justice.
