... with needleturn but I feel like I'm slowly improving. The photos are of three mini blocks in Block 9 of Leanne Beasley's "Butterfly Garden".
The flowers are good to applique because the pointy ends don't have to be neat as they are covered by the flower centre. I have tried needleturn applique many times over the last 11 years or so but this time I've been determined to make friends with needleturn.
This quilt is going to be extremely busy to the eye so I've tried to choose plainer sections of the fabrics for the petals.
Blocks 1 to 4 are finished. Block 5 has 6 appliqued butterflies so I decided to work backwards from Block 9 to Block 5 in the hope that my needleturn would have improved by the time I reach Block 5.
