First of all i would like to thank those of you who left comments on my first post. Its a new experience for me to share in this way and it is encouraging to receive such feedback. I am sorry that i didn't tick the box that would allow me to reply to each of you.
This is my third Block for the flower Garden Quilt and there is a fourth one almost completed.
I'm not sure what part of the process i enjoy most, choosing the fabrics and allowing myself to be a little "out there" or the actual needle turn applique.
Back-basted needle-turn is a new technique for me and i just love how easily the fabric roll's over. Much of the ease i am sure is due to the fabulous organic nature of Kim Mc Leans design, but in using the back-basted method the fabric seems to have a memory of where the basting stitches were and roll over with just a little encouragement. I am still finding concave curves a bit of a challenge, and as there are lots of them I need to get better at them.
