I've used Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles templates for this applique. They were made yesterday, and once they had cooled down the templates were removed, ready for the next task of stitching them in place. The turquoise thread will be trimmed once the templates have been removed - this was the only colour polyester thread I had, but it won't be seen when the circles have been stitched down!...
...these circles were held in place with a couple of spots of Roxann'e basting glus, then hand appliqued using 60wt polyester thread in colours to mtch the fabric (the threads are Superbobs and come in a fabulous range of colours). These just need to be added to the top and side of block 1 and it'll be complete!
