This week I enjoyed finishing a hand applique block. I picked the background fabric first, then the star, cardinal, tree and leaf fabrics to contrast with the background.

I use the needleturn method of applique and although there are maybe more efficient and accurate applique methods, this is my favourite so far. Here is the finished block.
This is the collection of blocks from the 2017 Blockheads project from Moda. There are 9 blocks in this quilt that were hand stitched over the past year. I'm starting to work on the math for the borders for this quilt.
But today I'll be cutting out and stitching block #5 of the Hand Piecing Quiltalong project. I'm a bit behind since block #6 has also been released.
What are you hand stitching today? Link up your blog post below and share your project with us.
