    Haven't decided yet. I plan to print the pattern out this weekend and try it. Also have to check the stash. I have committed myself to not buy anything else and use what I have. My only purchase will be for backing.
    Will let you know later. I know I have fall, but not sure about spring.

    Yes, when you work, even if it is part time. I'll have to let something wait for a while. :wink:

    Hey Deb,
    I was playing around with fabric to try to figure out leaf size and how to lay it out. Is this what you are looking for. This is not the fabric I will be using, just my working sample. Nothing is stitched down yet. Did you stitch the leaves first? When you started stitching the center how did you go about it?

    sample work in progress

    I placed everything where I wanted it first. Did the dab of glue stick to hold the leaves in place, THEN, I took off the plate and stitched down the leaves. Put the plate back down (I used a dab of glue stick on every 3rd petal or so to hold it in place as) and stitched around it. When that was done, I put the center on. Everything was done in a blanket stitch. Now, you don't have to put your leaves like I did....any way you wish is fine with me. For a sample block, it looks pretty good to me!

    Don't officially sign me up just yet ... but here's a block I made yesterday. The center isn't quite as bright in person. The camera flash went a little crazy!

    The background is beige with a subtle crazy quilt-like pattern. Hope it's okay.

    I'm sooooo slow when it comes to applique, so let me make sure I'll have enough time to complete the blocks before officially signing up. I'll let you know. :)
