Monday Morning Design Wall 3/12/2012

Another week and three more blocks!  I am having a blast as I am using fabric outside of my comfort zone and just having fun with the design and the colors.  The crazier the better!  This is so NOT like me so I am having a bit of difficulty but the more I do it, the better it seems to go.  My favorite fabric is the green polka dot and the red plaid fabrics so as that goes, the flower block with the red plaid is the best yet!  Now this is the Cloth Carousel's Applique BOM but there are only 12 months in the year and 20 block patterns!   I figured I would just do them all in order and eventually hit all the blocks they pull for the BOM!  I'll just be a step ahead. 





Thanks for checking out my blog and remember to go to Judy's page and see all the design walls!  SO MUCH FUN!   My favorite time to spend my lunch on Monday afternoon.
Love the pink flowers on this one, but the leaves were my favorite!!  The point of one leaf was difficult but I finally got it.  Persistence is a virtue.

    1. I use freezer paper and starch for these applique and I use needle turn for the Hawaiian blocks. Both work well with the respective sizez! I could not imagine using needle turn with the tiny pieces!

  8. I like your bright and colorful fabric choices. I'm not that brave....maybe someday I'll move out of my own comfort zone. Your blocks are cheerful and whimsical. Good job on the applique.

  9. I'm so impressed with your applique blocks. Your choise of fabric is just amazing. It makes my choises look boring.
