Applique Thursday 6/28/12

I finished my third block of Esther's BOM:  Forget Me Not.  I am really liking the blocks she gives us - you know how much I like flowers, and each month we have two different ones to pick from.
It is fused down, and I need to embellish it, but essentially done. I'm finding applique really reminds me of my cut and paste days playing with paper dolls.  Do you find it so also?   This is Jacob's Ladder - a flower I'm not familiar with, but when I looked it up on the internet found lovely examples.  Mostly blue and light purple flowers.
Charm winner for this week is Marcia W.  Congrats, Marcia, your charm is on its way to you.  There will be another winner next monday - just leave a comment or link to win. If you want another chance, leave a comment and a link.  Good Luck!

So I would love to see your eye candy - applique or otherwise - whatever you're working on, finished a while back, or planning.  See blue button below.

That looks great! You are right, fusible applique is fun and it does take me back to a 'few' summers ago in school... I am your newest follower. Check out my own quilting adventures at www.piecedbrain.com and follow me, too! Have a great weekend!
I adore these flowers and am glad you chose the red as the background. It just makes these blocks pop.

Congratulations Marcia W!

I quite like your applique block - my jacob's ladders didn't do much this year...not sure why but maybe it was the lack of a real winter? can't think of anything else...

Fun! I've never attempted applique. Well except for the Sunbonnet Sue and an Overall Sam quilts, I made a hundred years ago!
