FLOWERS AND SCRAPS. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO?

 

Hello Quilters!  It's been a while since I've posted, but that is because I've been spending time working in my yard while the weather is beautiful here in Michigan.  Now I hear we are getting snow on Tuesday.  Yikes!  

Above is the latest applique block for the Bliss pattern. The leaves aren't finished, but I'm trying to decide if I want to raw edge applique the center spine on each leaf or just stitch it in.  Lots of decisions, as I have one more block to make, then I have to decide if I want to make them all into one big quilt, or use them individually as wall hangings.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

Don't forget!  The Happy Scrappers meet this coming Saturday, April 24, at the Attic Window Quilt ShopChris has a new project to show us. and I can show you how I made this (below).

This is a scrappy wedding ring block.  I got the free pattern after watching Teresa Down Under's excellent video.  You can watch it here.
I wanted to learn all about sewing curves and I thought this would give me lots of practice while using my scraps at the same time.
There are so many ways to place the wedding ring blocks.  This question mark above makes me aware I have a lot to think about.

And don't forget to stop in at the Attic Window Quilt Shop to see all the new items in the store.  

Hugs, Caroll

Another wonderful, beautiful flower block! Decisions, decisions! Sometimes it’s an easy decide and sometimes it takes days of changing back and forth. You’ve done great with your curves sewing. Oh, the possibilities with that ring block! Have fun.
