BELLA GARDEN - WISTERIA BLOCK



I have almost caught up with my Bella Garden's second block 'Wisteria'.  I thought that by the amount of work and time it took me to do the first block, I would fall way behind with all the others, but the second block came together much quicker.  I like to think it was because I knew what I was doing :)

Anyway here is the block so far......I can't do all the Wisteria flowers as some of them overhang onto the border pieces and I need to attach them before I can finish the applique.  I will have to wait until Block 6 before I can start to assembly the whole quilt and there will be more applique to finish then.




Woops, I may have spoken to soon, these wisteria flowers are driving me crazy, the large part of the flower was fine, but the smaller round petals are very difficult to attach, I have had to resort to my free motion foot and do a circular motion around the edge about 3 times.  It actually looks like fabric painting now.  I'll keep at it and you can see the result soon.

Lovely, I'm sure the free motion will get better & easier the more you do.
Please post over on the MR blog too - and do a link if you like - that will send others over to look.
Those loose bits will drive you crazy for a while.

Still new to this blogging so I wasnt sure how to do the link so I just copied and pasted over the MR site. Hope thats ok?

Also Susan, why do we become members of others sites - is there a list somewhere of who I have joined and why do I join?? If i like a blog I add that to my Blog List but the members thing has me stumped?? Thks

Thanks for the comment and I have a long way to go before its finished, its one of those projects that will take a long time but should be worth it in the end.
