I will post it, but first my disclaimer: This was my very first applique test block. I have learned a lot from doing it. It seems each time I copied over the pattern to make the applique pieces, they grew larger, so even though the appliqued block didn't look too bad and I knew it was going to be somewhat larger than it was supposed to, when I went to add the hearts, they didn't fit like they were supposed to, as you can see from how wonky they are. But I have learned a lesson and will pay closer attention from now on.Originally Posted by sandpat
On to the thread. I tried the variegated thread and it's really pretty, although I probably will do it with a solid color. It doesn't show up as well on the green as it would if I embroidered on the blue, but this is what I have done for now. It's got a beautiful sheen to it, I guess because it's rayon, and that's one thing I wasn't finding in the embroidery floss that I could find around here. As is usual, it looks a lot prettier in person that it does in the picture.
