Well I was able to complete two more of the appliqued centres of the Flowerville quilt on Monday evening at the Rendlesham sewing group, then on Tuesday evening at the Busybee Stitching group I was VERY productive and appliqued the next three. I'd already fused weaveline to the back of the blocks when they were prepped for the embroidery (these Cottage Garden Threads are so pretty and look lovely with the Tilda fabric dresden plates). I added an applique paper circle to the centre back, trimmed the centre to size, and turned the edges over with the help of the Sewline glue stick and those apliquick tools...
...Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening was spent appliqueing the remaining 3 centres into place. I've been using my new favourite thread - Aurifil 80wt for the applique - and it has been really lovely to sew with. These blocks are looking very pretty, and I'm hoping to get the sashing cut and machined into place over the weekend, along with the borders.
