Last week I found a box with the start of appliqued blocks. Of the three blocks I found, this one remained to be finished. Of course, three blocks are better than two so I pulled the extra fabric out of the box and started cutting away. (This is why I packed the fabric away with the blocks so it would be ready to go years later..........and why I find mysterious collections of fabric bagged up in my closet!)
I completed the flower with a ruched center. I love this method of gathering a fabric strip because it adds so much dimension to a quilt.
A little ruched butterfly, along with a friend, flew into the picture and landed on the top of the block.
Ah, my block is completed. Now I am ready to add some quilting.
Where did I put those needles?
