It's a whole new calendar year ready to be filled in with stitching adventures! What will you create this year? In which projects do you want to put more stitches?
Today I will be doing some applique on my Life Is Beautiful blocks. This project was started almost 2 years ago and is almost to the quilting stage. This is embroidery block #29 that needs to be stitched to the base 4 patch block. There are 3 more blocks still to embroider.
Over the course of this project, I have become quite an expert at needle turn applique on curves. From my accumulated experience, I now know exactly how many clips to make in the seam allowances so that the circles will lay flat. This is the alternate block, made from a 4 patch block and the appliqued circle that is cut away from behind the embroidery blocks.
