I made my applique block this afternoon. I think it turned out so stinkin' cute!
I used my portable block design board to help keep my pieces organized and together. You can read about the design board here.
I really went out of my box on the background fabric. This gray stripe is definitely something I wouldn't have normally used. I was really hoping it was just a little more subtle on the stripe but I think it turned out okay in the end.
Almost all of my pieces for the applique are from the Timeless Treasures fat eight pack I received. I just love the "Pop" bundle they sent me. Timeless Treasures is one of fabulous sponsors in the In Our Garden Blog hop.
After I cut my pieces out, I laid them randomly in about the area they might go on my block that was laying on the board.
I arranged them to my liking, then I took the board and all to the ironing board ironed them down so that I could applique them. Didn't it turn out cute?
I got the pieced block cut out but didn't get it together before the Super Bowl Game came on. I personally don't watch the game but the cheese dip, margaritas, buffalo chicken roll, and commercials were calling my name. You'll have to come back tomorrow to see the pieced block.
