Hey, Remember This . . . . .

It's been months, several months, FIVE months, Five months and a day to be exact, since I blogged about Evening Bloom, my needle turn applique project by Blackbird Designs. Somehow, I got off track last fall, I started block 6 but just didn't get much past the starting point.

After so many months of not stitching I was worried my stitches would be back to beginner level, but I hadn't completely lost my touch, it feels great to be back at it, and here goes . . . .








Ta da, Block 6, all done, FINALLY!
I think it's my favorite block!!

Here are all 6 finished blocks, since I'm sure you've forgotten what they look like, I know I almost had.


Only 3 more blocks to go!

  2. Gorgeous! It's going to be another beautiful quilt!

    I can't remember if you're using a template method or back basting these...?

  6. Thanks for the reminder. When I get all my boxes unpacked and my studio whipped into shape (after a cross-country move), I need to get working on that quilt.

  8. One of the many things I love about your quilts, Thelma, is your fabric selection. I know there is a book, "Quilting Makes the Quilt" but get the fabric wrong and it can be disastrous in my mind. You are always right on the (fabric) money!

  11. This is so beautiful! I pulled the pattern out and was amazed at how HUGE the blocks finished. Has this been an issue for you? Seems like it would be awkward!?

  12. Jeanie, - this is my first hand applique project, so I don't have anything to compare it to. The blocks are big but I've had no trouble working with the big blocks or the big pieces.
