A Heartless B.....

No...No..Not what you're thinking! I meant block B without its appliqued hearts.

I'm still deciding on which applique method to use. I have not tried needle turn, but would like to learn it and now may not be the time to start. It's getting to the busy time of year. There's time yet. I'll think some more.

I now have only two stitcheries to do. I'm getting excited as some of my blocks can be sewn together now. I'm pleased with the overall look and hope to be able to show you soon.

Hope everyone is having fun also.

Whew Kayly, I thought " oh oh, what's going on here?" So pleased that the only problem you have is deciding which applique method to use. Your block looks lovely even if it is heartless.

Happy Quilting,Kayly.

It is such a beatiful block even without the heart. I have tried needleturn several times but I don't think I will be contented with it.
