I found this quilt block when I was going through my stack of quilt tops that need to be quilted. I have always admired applique and taught myself to machine applique years ago. I love to applique by machine because it is so much faster.
In 2000 I took my first needleturn applique class and this was my first attempt at this method of applique.
This is a very simple block but I adore it. I oftened wondered how the flower was made and quickly found it is called ruching. It looks much more complicated than it was to make. I love the texture of the layers.
I hope to make a pillow with this block. Maybe I will get to it next week.
My project I have in the works right now is Amelia's Rose Garden. I will share it with you in another post. I don't do much needlework in the summer. When I have it back out I will take pics.
I hope you enjoyed my soon to be pillow.
Thanks for visiting!
