The Flowers of Heart's Desire

I'm still on block 4, but I have completed the leaves on the inside of the block, along with all the thorns.

Now I'm moving along with the flowers.  I think the hardest part is picking out the fabrics.  That took a lot of time.  Then I cut my Floriani and ironed them to my fabrics.  Here you can see this happening.  I am keeping the flowers separate in bags and all the pieces are well labeled so it isn't hard to put them together.

And now I have 2 flowers done.  I only work on these blocks about one afternoon a week.  It is a slow, but steady progress.

Here is Eloise sitting on Grandpa's shoulder.  What is she looking at?

Ah yes.  There go Dad and Mom ready to ride the water.

Bye Eloise!

  1. I've always wanted to try one of those "waterbike" machines!

  2. Quilting AND sunshine fun, I do envy you this week as I am freezing!! Your blocks are coming along beautifully, and yes - the preperation is looong, but definitely worth it. This quilt is a triumph off details I think!

  3. Wow! look at all those bitty little thorns! That must've taken a long time. I'm starting a floral applique quilt soon. :) Still collecting fabrics for it.

  4. Beautiful blocks and I really like the addition of the thorns!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
