The other day, someone left a comment asking if I was still working on my needle turn applique project, Evening Bloom. Not only am I still stitching away, I'm still loving it.
It's the perfect ending to a perfect day and the perfect ending to a lousy day!
So here's block 2 . .
In full bloom!
I'm working on Evening Bloom with a friend, which is not only fun but keeps us on task to meet our goal of one block a month. Here are our blocks together.

And here are my first two blocks, this is how they will look in the quilt. I'm working away on block 3, when it's finished the first row of this project will be done!
If you're still trying to decide if you should finally give applique a try, don't wait any longer, the only thing that disappoints me about needle turn applique is that I didn't try it sooner. I guess I just needed the perfect project.
