Mary and I keep on truckin'...................

  I know I'm bad about not showing "process", even though it's not an intentional thing. I just keep thinking that I'll do "one more stem, or one more leaf", and before I know where I am, it's too late! So. on purpose, I took these photos on three separate occasions.........yesterday morning, this morning, and lastly, the end of sewing today, so you can see how it's gone. Let me first say that needleturn applique is simply cutting out your shape (leaf, petal, etc.) leaving a turn under allowance,  placing it on the background, then stitching it down by using your needle to turn under the small seam allowance. I was asked by a commenter, and couldn't email her because I could not find her address. I hope this helps.

So, this is what the medallion looked like yesterday morning, with quite a number of stems stitched, and over half of the leaves.

This post picks up on the very next entry, so if you want to see what came next, please keep on scrolling. Sorry for the problem! Michele

  1. Wow! This quilt is so COOL!! I can see why you can't stop working on it! I do the same thing with involved projects...I have a hard time taking "in progress" photos myself.

    Have a great time at Festival! I lived in Galveston for 4 years in the early 90's and got really spoiled going every year...multiple days each year. I miss that more than anything about Texas.

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  2. Pretty, pretty, pretty...good job!!!

  3. Lovely! The color variations in the leaves are looking so natural!

  4. Beautiful work and your fussy cuts are fabulous!

    Have FUN in Houston!!! Way to go. ; )

  5. It is just stunning! I love it!

  6. Your center is stunning so far. I can't believe how fast you are doing it! I'm looking forward to the next installment.

  7. This is exquisite! It gave me faint stirrings of wanting to try my hand at something much, much less complicated. WOW!

    Maybe chocolate will help it pass.

    I must work my way back and see how this started.
