Roseville applique

Kim McLeans Roseville Album quilt is definitely feeding my applique addiction!! It is so wonderful to put a few little stitches into some gloriously coloured fabrics, I try and do a little each day. Block Three has taken me a while but it is now finished and I've begun work on block Four.

Here are the three blocks I have now completed....
Block One...
Block Two...
Block Three...
I think after block four is done I will attempt one of the larger panels, they will definitely keep me going for a while. Have a lovely stitchy week! xo

Just gorgeous blocks. I cannot even see your stitches they are so fine and delicate. I adore your color choices for the oak leaf-shaped pieces in block three.

Your Roseville blocks look stunning! Interesting fabric choice, background fabric make everything "pop"...Love appliqué too, but I am doing most of it by machine (with invisible stitches & thread).

I agree with what everyone else says Cathy....your blocks really do stand out and I LOVE the black and white stems and circles.

Smashing, Cathy!!! I LOVE your use of that black with white polka dots for stems. Your color and fabric selections are masterful. ; )

Stunning work (as usual).
Thanks for your sweet email BTW. We've been away for a week or so with no Internet access so I've been absent from Blogland.
Hoping to get back into things a little more once school holidays are over.
See you soon!!!
