Kelly's Block


I blogged about this block here.
I wanted to add some applique to it so I used my beautiful William Morris book..
Well everything in the book is made using the machine blanket stitch method and it did not occur to me until I was almost done with this block to enlarge it for needle turn applique.
I am in the process of making the quilt sandwich and I hope that with some free motion quilting and maybe a bit of embellishment here and there, this will acquire the spunk I think is missing.

I think some embellishments will finish the block off very nicely.

I LOVE that book and hope one day to use it somehow :) I got it mainly for the detailed techniques in it. This applique piece really added something nicely to the foundation!
