Basted Iris Applique blocks

I've been busy this week basting applique blocks. I'm not quite ready to stand and rotary cut for a long time or sew at the machine (so work on the postage stamp quilt is still on hold) but sitting and basting blocks has been perfect. It feels so good to be working on a project again.
If you look closely at the middle yellow flower, you can see that I use a drawn line when I do needleturn applique. :)


On this basted block, I've even made some applique progress...the leaves, stem and bottom right petal are done and as you can see by my needle, I'm working on the top right petal. These blocks go pretty fast...the stem is really the most "trouble".

I had noticed you hadn't been blogging much and now I think I must have missed something - you have been sick? I will go back in your blog and see if you mentioned anything.

Oh, Miri, those are gorgeous! They just shine. Glad you've found something you can do while you continue to heal.

Those blocks are going to be really gorgeous. I'm hoping to make an applique quilt. Can you recommend any books for how to learn how? Or any tutorial?

They are so pretty! Those batiks are the perfect medium. Your needle-turn applique is beautiful. I'm glad you have a project you can do while you're getting the wind back in your sails!

Those are beautiful Miri! I admire applique but am not a fan of actually doing it!
