The flowers are pieced first, then I open up the greenery at the bottom center of the flowers to insert the stems & applique them on. My first block for the magazine is machine appliqued, then I did two more blocks from the same Jo Morton fabric lines (Crimson & Clover, Crimson Bouquet) & hand appliqued the stems on these. It, too, was enjoyable.
I also wanted to show you how the blocks look with a couple of the border prints Jo has in this line. They are just such bright & beautiful more clear colors. It's like, let's add a little brightness to the drabness of Civil War reproductions. Don't get me wrong - I love reproductions. Again it was very much fun to work with these fabrics. I hope you enjoy them, too.!
I'll be giving away 2 copies of the 100 Blocks magazine, so don't forget to leave a comment at the bottom of this post. And be sure to visit Quiltmaker's site before Friday, May 4th to win more prizes.
