Section C of Flowerdale (pattern by Gail Pan Designs) was the next section to be appliqued - four applique blocks with lots of flowers and leaves and bias stems in beautiful shades of blue and green, appliqued onto gorgeous background fabrics. I've been using the applique paper and glue stick method for this this project (there are lots of tutorials demonstrating this technique on YouTube - my favourite ones are with Lynette Anderson) and I'm really pleased with how this project is looking...
...my favourite background fabric is the "sampler" one below. These fabrics are from the Blueberry Crumb Cake collection by Blackbird Designs for Moda, and this was a kit that I bought online from Australia about 5 years ago (if you're in the UK, the pattern is available from Patchwork Chicks). Each section comprises of appliqued blocks, 9-patch blocks and 2.5" squares, so is pieced together very simply. My favourite thread for piecing is Aurifil 50wt and I've used a neutral colour for this project...
...and here is the completed Section C - I love the effect of the scrappy backgrounds and the gorgeous blues and green fabrics. Only one more section to go!
