I forgot to take a picture before sewing it into my 5 completed rows.  As you can see, needle-turn applique is not my strong point.

Pretty block Karla. I think you did fine with the appliqué.

Love your fabrics Karla. I'm also struggling with needle turn. My pedals turned out too small and "uniquely" shaped.

Very pretty blocks Karla and Judy. Need to make only one post as you never know when or if you can complete a one.

And mine were too big and even more uniquely shaped, LOL.

Nice work Judy. I like your green background.

I found this block in EQ but it's slightly different. I edited it to look more like the one in the book. I haven't made it yet but it's my favourite in the group.

Thanks Kris. I'm actually going through the book looking for applique blocks. I am determined to improve my needle turn skills.

Here's my Honey Bee. I reverse appliquéd the black areas. The holes are from my basting stitches.

Very nice Kris.  Did you find the reverse applique easier to do than the regular?

Perfect Kris, I love it. I tried the reverse applique which was a dismal failure.

Thanks Pat A. In this case the reverse appliqué was more tedious but it helped with placement of the petals. With smaller pieces, and having a point, reverse appliqué can be more difficult. I don't have a problem with either method. The only form of appliqué I'm not fond of is fusible.

Bonita:

Thanks Bonita. I like to work on different skill sets and samplers are a great way to practice.

Thanks Judy. Practice on something bigger.

Karla, very nice block.  Your applique looks good to me.

Kris, I like the way you did your block.  very nicely done.

Judy, your block looks very good to me.   I have done the applique twice so I hope the third time will be a charm.

Ooh, what a pretty block!  I haven't been around much.  Busy with work, minor renovations, finishing up a quilt my mother started, and creating a charity quilt... Excited to see that we've started on the applique blocks.  Looking forward to when I can eventually get back to this!
