I was moving things around in my quilt studio the other day and came across a box…..a HUGE BOX of quilt blocks.
Can you guess how old these blocks are???
Spring Batik Appliqued Flowers
There are all kinds of sizes, colors, and fabrics. Most of them I had forgotten about and when I saw these four blocks I remembered that I had planned on writing up a pattern called Spring Batik Appliqued Flowers for this and…….for some reason I moved on to something new and forgot all about it.
I think this is when I knew that batiks were my favorite fabric for free motion applique.
The applique was all done on my vintage Singer sewing machine using a darning foot and I used embroidery thread.
Why did I never finish this quilt project? Do you have projects like this that you haven’t finished?
I stuck the blocks up on my design wall and kind of liked this design.
Then I decided to add a narrow sash of a dark green batik. I’ll also use this same batik for my binding. I am going to work on this and hopefully sometime this month I’ll share it with you.
Were you wondering how old the blocks were??? Well, I found my blog post for the Flowers with Dots and a Lil’ Twister wall hanging from……2012!
It is definitely time to finish this!
