    1. Yeah the red and green with the pop of yellow is my favorite, very traditional but still gorgeous.

  5. I like that on this block the applique is not in a circle. Something different.

    1. I agree, the designer of this quilt had such a good eye. It amazes me that she was able to do this many years ago.

      I do needle turn, Jill. Sometimes I back baste but for most of my applique I use the freezer paper on top method. I used to mark the seams but I hate doing the marking and the freezer paper on top works well for me.
