I just started what will be my first block and that is because I thought it was the easiest to work on. (Four blocks are now available.) What was I thinking? There were 12 flower petals and 18 leaves that need to be appliqued on this one. Not as easy as I thought. I should mention that I am doing my blocks very scrappy with scrappy backgrounds, too. I so wanted to do a red and green applique quilt.
Anyways, I have some greens picked out for the leaves. Not sure I will use the lighter greens, but I know some friends who would say "go for it", so I am going to give it a try. You can see the freezer paper pattern that I drew up so that I can use it to correctly place my pedals and leaves and the light box that I am using for this process is the extra insert that I got for my SewEzi table.
Here it is with my Ott light below for the light source. It worked out great. If you remember, I usually tape my stuff to the window which doesn't work well at night....when I am usually wanting to do something like this.
