Applique Thursday 4/11/12 - My First Mystery Block

Not completely done - still have some thread work [using a varigated thread and tiny zig-zag around the edges] to do on the other leaf, the corn flowers and the sunflowers (but I don't know what to do on that yet - and I'm still waiting for a 50% off coupon at Michaels to get my pencils). Also have to add the name plate.The white border around the block is to show what I think will be the inner border as that was what Esther had on the pattern, but this is a mystery, so hmmm.  I've never done a block with so many pieces, but going one by one, methodically, with teflon sheet and pins, small iron and working in units of 3 pieces or more at a time{you can see one such unit at my post of the 9th}, it's coming together.  Thank you so much for this pattern, Esther.  You can still join in - her Forget Me Not button is on my sidebar. And the pattern will be free up to the 15th of this month when we get our next blocks.

Would love to see what you're working on, applique or not. Please add your link at the blue button below.

How beautiful! The dark red background really sets of the block!

Stunning! That would have taken me 6 months minimum.

What a beautiful job. I am saving the patterns but have too much going at the moment.

I really like your block - especially since it's not on a typical light background.
