I don't know about you, but I like to have some sort of "slow stitching" project handy. This one is going to be fun.
I decided to cut out petals, and when I layed them out, it seemed that five were just enough.
My next step was basting the petals a little more than 1/4 inch away from the edge.
Now it was time for some slow stitching...in this case, needle-turn appliqué.
I plan to make a at least a dozen blocks, so my hope is that "practice makes perfect", and I will get more comfortable with my appliqué stitch as I go along : )
Here are two finished Petal blocks:
And of course, I had my helper at my side to occasionally play with the thread!
