My first blocks

As you know my fabric arrived on Friday so after catching up on the laundry I started :o)

This is my first attempt at needle turn applique but I think that I have found a method that is working for me and the more blocks I do I am hoping the rounder my curves will become.

Here is my progress so far.



No cherries yet. They might get added when I am a little more confident at the smaller pieces.



(Sorry about the dark photos. It is overcast here today)


and then all three



Looking forward to seeing every ones blocks,
Sharon

You are doing really well with the applique Sharon! I'm loving Strawberry Fields, but am still yet to make up my mind what I'm using for my quilt...although I'm not starting until I've finished a couple of other projects :) Keep up the great work!

I ended up doing my cherries in stitchery. They were just so small, I didn't even attempt to applique them.
