Another Appliqué update

It has been awhile since I posted about my progress on my long term, ongoing needle turn appliqué project. (which, by the way, is going much better than my hand stitching embroidery....just saying)

I have been working away at the blocks, and have quite a stack of them now. I think I am getting close! So I tried a couple of different layouts...
This one has half circles of the tulips around the edges (this is how it was shown in the book)


And this is laying out full circles...

I think I like the first option better...what do you think??

I still need a few more blocks, and then add some borders! I will have to really make an effort to continue and finish these, now that I have my baby Jan travel machine!

  1. I agree with you; the first layout looks good. I really like that pattern - your quilt is going to be gorgeous when you finish!

  2. That is so pretty! I like both layouts but the first one does have a sense of openness.

  4. Well done Flo! I like the first lay-out for the design and it is a little more representative of the period of the quilt pattern.

  6. This is gorgeous and I agree with you, I like the first option the best, although you can't go wrong either way.

  9. Fantastic work - and just to upset the apple cart: I really like the second version, the first one looks a bit "chopped up" to me, as if the maker ran out of blocks. But, whatever you decide, that will be a stunning quilt!
