How About A Little Color - "Flower Pots"

I have been working on so much red and green fabric I decided I needed a little color in my life.





I really like Kim McClean’s patterns the  pieces  are large,  the curves are gradual and very easy to stitch and she lets the fabric do most of the work for you.


These blocks are only prepped and need to be stitch but it was a nice change to work with some of Kaffe  Fassett’s beautiful fabrics.

Happy Stitching.
Nancy

Very pretty! It's fun to see how the Kaffe fabrics make every applique so different, yet wonderful in their own way.

Such happy blocks! They must be so fun to work - they would certainly brighten up a cold and snowy winter's day.

Of course, you grabbed my heart as soon as I saw your incredible applique using my fave, Kaffe!! If your work and Kaffe's fabrics are not the perfect combo, I am not sure what is!! Can't wait to see this completed!!

Happy colors and I like the flowers too! I've always wanted to make a Kim McLean pattern, maybe someday. You're doing a great job on the applique.

Just beautiful Nancy -- are they raw edge then machine stitched ? or are you turning them ? They are so very beautiful -- a nice reminder of spring!
Thanks for stopping by the blog... Karen

I too love Kaffe fabrics. I have not worked with them for a year or so. Hmmm, you've inspired me!
