Roseville Album block Four

Block Four is done.
These blocks are so enjoyable. This will be a 'slow and steady wins the race' quilt, it is going to take me quite a while to complete, so I am going to enjoy the journey rather than worry about the end result!
These four completed blocks make up the four corners of the quilt. I decided against working on the middle vase blocks yet, and will next start on the larger animal block....

Woohoo, check out all those delicious curves on my freezer paper drawn tree!
I'm still in applique heaven! xo

Hey Cathy, Wow! I am loving this work... I would like to do a serious applique project myself and am taking a needleturn class next month. Your work, and the work of other talented women on Glorious Applique inspired me!

That's some serious applique work in that tree! Looks a little scary to me. Your work is so beautiful!

Megan said...

WOW! That is just gorgeous. One could sit and look at it for hours on end!

Deb said...

Cathy it's just beautiful and I agree 100% it's the joy of the process that counts, not the race to finish. I love that tree - it looks like machine stippling doesn't it? Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Kathy, These blocks are so gorgeous!! I love them. I so wish you could teach me a thing or two about applique. It would be great to have a personal lesson from you.

Sonja♥ said...

I'm (very) impatient to see which fabrics you will choose for the different animals:)
