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".
