Well, this one was a doozie! As I was half way through the applique, I was really second guessing my decision to reduce these blocks from the original 19” to 10”. Look at all these little buds! I eliminated two – can you spot which ones?
I didn’t think so. There is a red Touch Me Not block coming up, but there are not as many buds on that one. I think Esther made the pink one first and when she came to the red one she figured out it looked just fine with half the buds!
I love the back of this one too. Because I am doing this in the potholder method, all of my backs will be a different chintz type fabric. Fun!
If you read my Blog regularly you know I don’t use commercial patterns very often. They did a fantastic job reproducing these patterns. They really are a pleasure to do. And, the proceeds from the sale of this pattern goes to the Virginia Quilt Museum, so you just can’t go wrong! Hope you will go to the link (here) and see all the great blocks. There is so much creativity out there. You will be surprised at all the different fabrics, colors and methods that some are using to make their blocks. Just plain fun!
