Midget Block #87 - Tempting Tulip
I am so happy with the way this block turned out. My hand applique is getting much better and I don't feel quite so fumble fingered when I do it. I had not attempted applique until I started working on these midget blocks, and my Dear Jane blocks as well, and I can see the improvement each time I complete a new applique piece.
My little circle on top of the flower turned out so well. I had been having trouble with making my circles round so I purchased the Perfect Circle templates by Karen Kay Buckley and I think that has helped tremendously. It really does help to start out with a circle that is an actual circle...when I would make my own circle templates they were never quite round!
From this picture you can see that I use up lots of scrappy bits and pieces.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
