During our snow days this week, I finished up the February blocks for the Stash Bee. Our Queen for this month is Diane who blogs at The Cheshire Quilter and she requested applique blocks with hearts and/or flowers.
That’s it. No color preferences, no preference on how we appliqued (hand or machine) or what stitch we used. I honestly had more trouble putting these blocks together because, with the lack of specific guidance, I was questioning everything I was doing! I hope Diane likes what I came up with!
I have never really done applique before so I decided to stick with machine applique as that seemed easier to learn than hand stitching.
As I started working on the blocks though, I found it fun so I made her a few. Who doesn’t love a little variety? 🙂
And with it being right around Valentine’s Day, I had to make one that was a little festive!
I’ll be putting these in the mail soon. They’re heading across the pond as Diane lives in the UK!
