Block 2 (at last)

Wow were those leaves daunting - and I haven't sewn them yet! This was a hard block to pin up - it looks like a random collection of green bits, I can't get the placement right on the felt. But I like he overall colour of it. Corliss told me that the background is in - so I will get it sometime this week. But I'm thinking I might continue to cut and pin rather than sew. I already have plenty of that to do. I will do the bride next. I have really been enjoying seeing all the different colours and variations to the original that people are doing. Can you imagine a gallery of all these when finished? Cheers, Deb


  1. Yes, it looks daunting with that many leaves. I like the colours of your leaves and the smoky pink flowers look great - Hugs Natima

  2. i love your greens,i don`t think the leaves are daunting,for me it is just relaxing to sew on leaves,happy stitching,susi

  3. I love your pink flowers, it will be nice to see someone using the same background fabric. I have to say it's just as well that I have'nt got to go to Threadbear, with all those gorgeous new patterns I might be in trouble!!

  4. I love the pink flowers, too Deb - really pretty!So far so good - I think the preparation is the worst part, so you should be on easy street now!
    Hugs - Lurline♥

  5. Love you fabric choices Deb and your Pink flowers. I am about a third of the way through with the leaf applique. Slowly but surely :-) I am finding them very theraputic.

  6. Hi Deb,

    I really love the look of your pinks! I'm having a little trouble finding just the right pinks in my stash to go with my darker background. I told myself in the beginning that I would only pull fabrics from my stash, but some of my paler ones won't work. May have to go shopping...

    Your lovely leaves will be so worth the effort so hang in there!! I can't wait to see your colors on your background.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  7. Yes, I also got a telephone call from Megan to say the background fabric is in, so I can't wait to finally start! Deb, I LOVE your block, the pink flowers are so pretty and your leaves are perfect. This is going to loook lovely. Well done!

  8. You know, the leaves look lovely in a pile.. don't worry, there are even more in block 12!

  9. Very exciting the fabric is in! You did a wonderful job selecting the foliage fabric. I love greens and yes, pretty pink flowers.
