    1 APRIL 2012 BOM Tulip pictures.

    Hi Again,

    I will start by posting the block that I have made for April 2012. If you have already looked at the pattern you will see that I tweaked mine just a little. No surpeise, I am sure!! Instead of making the four corners I decided to put a darker border around my Tulip. I was just into purple this month, so I experimented on mine. Hope everyone like's my block & are excited to start pulling fabric's & getting a start on their's. Good Luck to you all & just haqve fun working on yours!!

    Sulabug I love the purples of your tulip Im loving this block so much Im sure I will have to make several because there will be so many fabric colors I will want to have it in. And Patrice Love your block also flowers are always so much fun and you can never have too many I my humble opinion.

    Sulabug, I love your purples...someday, I will make a quilt for myself and it will be in tones of purple, blues, aquamarine, they're soothing to me.

    I can't see Patrice's picture, I can't only see the red X and the title of the block. Any ideas?

    SulaBug, I love your purple tulip. It will be a fun block to make and will get us away from the machine for a bit.

    Mine is done

    Just finished mine this afternoon. Don't look too closely. It is my absolute first attempt at needle turn applique and i don't own matching silk thread. It was a fun block to make. It isn't perfect but I still love it.

    I think it is great. You don't have to use just silk thread.Not perfect is 'homemade"

    I used silk thread, just not matching in color. Thanks for the compliment. I am pretty happy with it. My applique got better with each piece that I added. When it is done, it will be a wall hanging at work behind my desk so nobody will be examining that closely. I love doing this BOM. It is so much fun. I was very intimidated by needle turn applique. It isn't as difficult as I thought... and I will definitely do more.

    hopetoquilt,
    Very pretty-it's such a happy block. I think you did a really good job for your first applique. I have never used silk thread, does it feel any different to work with?

    I feel like silk thread slides through the fabric more easily and is less noticeable than hand quilting thread or other threads.

    I like your fabric and color combinations. Looks Rustic to me..and I love rustic. Im still auditioning fabrics for this block. I'm having trouble deciding. I love this block so much I am thinking about making one and substituting it for one of the blocks in the quilt Im working on for my grandaughter. Again wonderful block Hopetoquilt.
    Have an awesome day!

    Very nice, HopetoQuilt...You're braver than I am, lolo - I always do applique by machine, using different stitches, depending on the item I'm appliquing. Kudos to you..

    These are coming out so pretty everyone! I'm not fond of doing applique, but have done mine and will post tomorrow.
