Quilt ADD in therapy

Other than my family, the passion of my life is quilting. An eclectic, I love a wide variety of styles and techniques encompassing both machine and hand work. I am a longarm quilter who can work for you. I enjoy any style, from pantographs to all-over to full custom, ranging from traditional to modern. I love bringing vintage tops to life and am willing to work with a challenging quilt top. Instagram: lyncc_quilts

BOMs Away - Petals on Water Reflections

  


Welcome to the link-up for BOMs Away Mondays!
Where we share what we're doing on a BOM-type project 
so they don't stall out in UFO-land!
(Linky at the bottom.)

I was going to do the Month 5 blocks for my Water Reflection BOM, and noticed that I'd completely forgotten that the Month 4 blocks are supposed to have white petals appliqued onto them.

99.5% of the time, I do my applique by the backbasting method. These blocks have thick seam points, though, where the petal points congregate, and I didn't feel like fiddling with those in the basting. 

So I pulled out my freezer-paper applique tools and got 32 petals prepped. (I'm not convinced that the fiddliness of this method was less finicky than the backbasting would have been. . . )

Half of them are pinned on. I haven't used my little applique pins for ages and ages! They're so itty bitty!



Not sure how long it'll be before these are all stitched up, as I have several labels, hanging sleeves, and bindings to work up in the next two weeks.
